John Locke (1632-1704) is a central figure in the history of thought, and in liberal doctrine especially. This major study brings a range of his wider views to bear upon his political theory. Every political theorist has a vision, a view about the basic features of life and society, as well as technique which mediates this into propositions about politics. Locke's vision spanned questions concerning Christian worship, ethics, political economy, medicine, the human understanding, revealed theology and education. This study shows how the character of these wider concerns informed Two Treatises of Government, especially in respect of a view of divine teleology, and situated a distinctive view of politics which treated the state and the church in parallel terms.

'... no one interested in its subject would be likely to finish it without having had their own vision of Locke improved, corrected, and enlarged.' English Historical Review '... impressively learned ... imaginative ... thorough, judicious and scholarly.' Ethics '... [an] argument of unusual comprehensiveness, power and sophistication ... The Mind of John Locke makes a powerful case for the validity of Harris's chosen approach.' Locke Newsletter
