In this work, Ruth W. Grant presents a new approach to John Locke's familiar works. Taking the unusual step of relating Locke's "Two Treatises" to his "Essay Concerning Human Understanding," Grant establishes the unity and coherence of Locke's political arguments. She analyzes the "Two Treatises" as a systematic demonstration of liberal principles of right and power and grounds it in the epistemology set forth in the "Essay."
