Meet the Author

Born in 1632 in Somerset, England, John Locke was the son of an attorney in a middle-class family. In 1652 he went to Oxford and studied medicine. The first earl of Shaftesbury introduced Locke to the world of politics, and early in their association, Locke served as secretary of the Board of Trade and Plantations and secretary to the Lords Proprietors of the Carolinas. In 1696, Locke was made Commissioner of Trade, a position he held for several years before his death in 1704.

I read this book over the summer, so I'm a little late on me review. This book took me about four weeks to read. Although the book isn't all too long, it required more studying that books you may be used to. John Locke has remained on my top five favorite philosphers, however, I feel he has always had trouble with clarity. He uses many examples in this book to illustrate "simple ideas" and "complex ideas;" however, if you don't understand the premises to all his arguments it will be very difficult to continue throughout the reading. I highly recommend this book to philosophy students, scholars, and those interested in past thinkers.
