Another book I read while getting my BA in Philosophy at UCLA. The most interesting thing about this work of Locke's is that we also have Leibnitz's New Essays, which discusses it point by point. As far as I know this is a unique situation among the extant works of the classic thinkers.

Although of primary interest to serious students of philosophy, there are many readers who will want to try Locke's famous Essay. It should appeal especially to those readers who agree with the British poet Pope's advice that <the proper study of mankind is man.>

There appear to be odd artifacts in the conversion process where suddenly appeared odd symbols. It is also not as easily navigated as other books, but it is free and a quality read
