Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Judging Rights presents an understanding of Lockean thought that bridges the gaps between apparent contradictions and inconsistencies. . . . McClure's Locke offers a theistic but not a scriptural point of view. His works, whether Tracts or Treatises, line out the human position in a hierarchical order of creation. Humans are subject to God's law but also adopt the law to guide their actions."—Melissa A. Butler, American Political Science Review

"McClure draws out some interesting insights into the nature of Locke's political philosophy. . . . In thus developing a new perspective on Locke's Treatises, McClure has produced a work of scholarship that is deserving of her subject."—Review of Metaphysics
