The Social

The social contract defended by Hobbes, according to Mondin (2006), is ' ' it resigns to some rights, placing them at the hands of one alone man, soberano.' ' (MONDIN, p 116). Therefore, the contract is a carried through agreement enters the men whom by means of the reduction of its freedom they aim at to guarantee the life, however, so that this agreement was kept, according to Hobbes, it had the necessity of a sovereign who guaranteed the social order. This sovereign by means of the force would be the guarantor of the pacification of the men, therefore, the pact without the sword, would not pass of fallacy, therefore the English philosopher will defend the absolute power of the sovereign for two reasons: 1) ' ' the pacts without the sword not they pass of words, without force ' ' (HOBBES, p 141); 2) ' ' the right to represent the person of all is conferred what it is become sovereign by means of a pact celebrated only between each one, and not between the sovereign and each one of the others ' ' (HOBBES, p 146). The absolute power is necessary to destroy the rivalry between the men, in order to guarantee the peace consequently and the life of each citizen. He was not the sovereign who carried through the contract with the people, but the men between itself are that they had established a pact who had transferred its wills in an only will that is of the sovereign, that is, the actions of this had been assented by the men, since it did not establish pact some, then are exempt to fulfill the laws. Therefore, because of the social contract firmed between the men the sovereign it has as only duty to guarantee the peace and as right the absolute power to carry through any action, since it is a species of ' ' projection of povo' '.
