Overview

This volume of essays by a distinguished international group of scholars looks both at core areas of John Locke's philosophy and political theory and at areas not usually discussed--the links between his philosophy and his religious and political thought, the effects and implications of Locke's works in the world at the time, and the manifestations of those effects in the present day. Drawing on material not available until recently, the book is the first original collection of Locke scholarship in some years.
