About this topic
Summary John Locke (1632-1704) was an English philosopher best known for his empiricism (the denial of innate ideas or principles) and his attempt to reconcile the science of his day with our pre-theoretical conception of the world. His conception of the workings of the human mind provided an important basis for the discipline of psychology. A theme that makes itself felt throughout his work is epistemic humility: on Locke’s view, human knowledge is severely limited and hence dogmatism is to be resisted.
Key works Locke’s An Essay concerning Human Understanding (1689) is the major source for his metaphysics and epistemology. The best scholarly edition of this work is Peter Nidditch 2008, the first entry in Oxford’s new edition of Locke’s works, which, when complete, will displace the earlier unknown 1823 edition of the works, which is still consulted today. Locke’s contributions to political philosophy include the influential Letter on Toleration (1689, Locke 1965) and Two Treatises of Government (1690, Locke 1988).
Introductions For overviews of Locke's thought, see Jolley 1999 and Lowe 2005. Ayers 1997 covers Locke’s epistemology and metaphysics. Rogers 1994 a useful collection of articles. The standard biography of Locke is Woolhouse 2007.

    This essay attempts to develop Althusser’s suggestion that Locke’s political theory and its central concepts, from the state of nature to the social contract, rest on a heretofore unrecognized distinction between the human and the inhuman. Locke’s notion of a human species with rights and obligations conferred upon it by God is a political rather than biological or natural one. At the origin of humanity is a choice : the choice to consult or not to consult the reason that should (...)

    In An Essay Concerning Human Understanding Locke makes an extravagant claim: Morality is as capable of demonstration as Mathematics. In the sixth Conversation between the seventeenth-century philosopher John Locke and the student of language Terence Moore, Moore points out that Locke's own arguments on the nature of language demonstrate that morality in a strong sense is not demonstrable. The Conversation then turns to Locke's real concern ??? ways in which words used in moral judgements might be made less ???uncertain, vague, (...)
