Each volume of this series of companions to major philosophers contains specially commissioned essays by an international team of scholars, together with a substantial bibliography, and will serve as a reference work for students and non-specialists. One aim of the series is to dispel the intimidation such readers often feel when faced with the work of a difficult and challenging thinker. The essays in this volume provide a systematic survey of Locke's philosophy informed by the most recent scholarship. They cover Locke's theory of ideas, his philosophies of body, mind, language, and religion, his theory of knowledge, his ethics, and his political philosophy. There are also chapters on Locke's life and subsequent influence. New readers and non-specialists will find this the most convenient, accessible guide to Locke currently available.

Industry Reviews

"All clearly written, [the chapters] cover fundamentals of Locke's positions as well as discussions of recent shcolarly disputes. Chappell's chapter on Locke's theory of ideas, McCann's on bodies, substance, and issues surrounding Locke's atomism, and Schneewind's discussion of the moral philosophy are just outstanding. The book is an exceptional research tool." --Choice
