Ideas and Qualities in Locke's "Essay"

History of Philosophy Quarterly 13 (1):73 - 88 (1996)
This paper argues that Locke often used "ideas" to stand for qualities, and used the quality-word "mode" to stand for ideas, because of a substantive conflation in his thought; not because of a mere superficial ambiguity in his use of the word "idea." Suggestions are offered as to the possible sources of this conflation
