Overview

The fame of Edward Stillingfleet (1635-99) in the history of philosophy rests on his important controversy with Locke. However, he was a significant and influential philosopher in his own right whose other works are often neglected. This collection gives the opportunity to assess all of Stillingfleet's major philosophical writings, as well as his important critique of Locke's philosophy.

Locke's "Essay concerning Human Understanding" published in March 1690, met with immediate success but also a flood of literature in opposition. Stillingfleet, then Bishop of Worcester, was the most famous of the critics. First in his "Vindication of the Doctrine of the Trinity", and then in two further letters, he drew attention to the inconsistencies of Locke's argument and in particular the unsatisfactory explanation of the idea of substance. Locke replied at length and the published letters between them continued back and forth until the bishop's death in 1699. In addition to these exchanges, this collection includes Stillingfleet's writings on Church and State and the authority of the Bible. Added to these is a biography of Stillingfleet thought to have been written by Richard Bentley, who lived in Stillingfleet's house and was his chaplain. The texts are extremely scarse in their original editions. The editor G.A.J. Rogers has selected the best editions of Stillingfleet's works and provides an introduction to the collection.
