John Locke and the Origins of Private Property: Philosophical Explorations of Individualism, Community, and Equalityby Matthew H. Kramer
Pub. Date: 11/30/2003
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
John Locke's attempt to justify private property is one of the central elements in his political philosphy. Matthew Kramer's new book explores in depth the Lockean theory of property, along with many other aspects of Locke's political thought. Drawing on the techniques of analytic philosophy, Kramer offers some rigorous and extensive techniques of Locke's arguments. While subsequently investigating the consequences of the shortcomings in Locke's reasoning, Kramer maintains that our understanding of Locke's political vision must change considerably. Kramer's book will be of interest to political philosophers, legal philosophers, and intellectual historians.
