Locke's Philosophy: Content and Context
G. A. J. Rogers
Clarendon Press, 1996 - Philosophy - 257 pages
Three hundred years after his major publications, John Locke remains one of the most potent philosophical influences in the world today. His epistemology has become embedded in our everyday presumptions about the world, and his political theory lies at the heart of the liberal democratic state. This collection by a distinguished international group of scholars looks both at core areas of Locke's philosophy and political theory and at areas not usually discussed - the links between Locke's philosophy and his religious and political thought, the effects and implications of Locke's works in the world at the time, and the manifestation of those effects in the present day. Drawing on material not available until recently - on both the modern texts of the Clarendon Edition of Locke's works and on unpublished manuscripts - Locke's Philosophy: Content and Context adds to our appreciation of Locke's thought and influences in the first original collection of Locke scholarship in some years.
