Of the Conduct of the Understanding by John Locke

This letter shows the importance Locke attached to the Conduct, and its intended place within the body of the Essay. Unfortunately he never completed the work, which was finally published only in the Posthumous Works of 1706. The big topic which Locke was only just beginning to open up was that of the 'Ethics of Belief'. Every man, he tells us, should regulate his ascent by the evidence alone - a maxim easier to state than to understand, and easier to understand that to put into practice.
