Swift sees the king of Brobdingnag as more enlightened that the emperor of Lilliput. Gulliver has many thoughtful discussions with the King of Brobdingnag about philosophy and ethics. Unlike the Emperor of Lilliput, the king of Brobdingnag is a true intellectual who cares about his subjects and likes to ponder the complexities of life.
