    Causation, Cosmology and the Limits of Reason.Paul Russell - 2013 - In James Harris (ed.), The Oxford Handbook of British Philosophy in the Eighteenth-Century,. New York, NY, USA: pp. 599-620.
    For well over a century the dominant narrative covering the major thinkers and themes of early modern British philosophy has been that of “British Empiricism”, within which the great triumvirate of Locke-Berkeley-Hume are taken to be the dominant figures. Although it is now common to question this schema as a way of analyzing and understanding the period in question, it continues to command considerable authority and acceptance. (One likely reason for this is that no credible or plausible alternatives structures or (...)

    Thinking Matter in Locke's Proof of God's Existence.Patrick J. Connolly - forthcoming - Oxford Studies in Early Modern Philosophy.
    Commentators almost universally agree that Locke denies the possibility of thinking matter in Book IV Chapter 10 of the Essay. Further, they argue that Locke must do this in order for his proof of God’s existence in the chapter to be successful. This paper disputes these claims and develops an interpretation according to which Locke allows for the possibility that a system of matter could think (even prior to any act of superaddition on God’s part). In addition, the paper argues (...)

    Boyle, Bentley and Clarke on God, Necessity, Frigorifick Atoms and the Void.J. J. MacIntosh - 2001 - International Studies in the Philosophy of Science 15 (1):33 – 50.
    In this paper I look at two connections between natural philosophy and theology in the late 17th century. In the last quarter of the century there was an interesting development of an argument, earlier but sketchier versions of which can be found in classical philosophers and in Descartes. The manoeuvre in question goes like this: first, prove that there must, necessarily, be a being which is, in some sense of "greater", greater than humans. Second, sketch a proof that such a (...)

    Locke ante el argumento ontológico: textos y comentario.Rogelio Rovira Madrid - 1994 - Diálogo Filosófico 28:51-70.
    La formulación cartesiana del argumento ontológico es desestimada y criticada por Locke en dos textos que remiten, sucesivamente, a la versión que afirma a Dios como ens perfectissimus y a la que lo afirma como ens necessarium. La objeción de principio es coherente con las tesis gnoseológicas de Locke. Las objeciones lógicas descansan en su posición conceptualista respecto del problema de los universales. La objeción metafísica pretende la posibilidad de una lectura atea del argumento ontológico.

    Faith and Reason in John Locke.Wioleta Polinska - 1999 - Philosophy and Theology 11 (2):287-309.
    Against the prevailing interpretations that perceive John Locke as either a rationalist or as contradictory on the issue of faith and reason, this paper contends that Locke consistently argued for a compatibility of faith and reason. From his perspective, faith and reason are not two distinct “side by side entities, but instead they permeate each other’s realm in a fashion that does not violate the integrity of either one of them. Particular attention will be given to Locke’s distinctions between knowledge (...)

    God and Matter in Locke: An Exposition of Essay 4.10.Jonathan Bennett - 2005 - In Mercer & O'Neill (ed.), Early Modern Philosophy: Mind Matter Metaphysics. Oxford University Press.
    Although we never made time to talk it out thoroughly, Margaret Wilson and I shared an interest in, and enthusiasm for, the tenth chapter in Locke’s Essay IV, entitled ‘Of Our Knowledge of the Existence of a GOD.’ In the present paper, written in sad tribute to her work and her person, I shall expound that deep, subtle, intricate, flawed chapter. While I shall evaluate its arguments as I go, I chiefly aim just to make clear what happens in those (...)
