Titel: The Works of John Locke. Volume VI.
Verlag: Routledge, London, 2002.
Facsimile Reprint of the 1794 edition. Hardback. Set ISBN: 0415153840. Single volume only. John Locke (1632-1704) was one of the greatest Western philosophers and the father of English empiricism. In philosophical, political, religious and educational thought he inspired the leading minds of both Europe and America. He argued against Descartes and Spinoza's exaggerated rationalism, waking up philosophy to a new empiricism. His ideas formed the moral basis for the ideas of Voltaire, Montesquieu and the French Encyclopdistes, and in America greatly influenced Jonathan Edwards and Thomas Jefferson. This ninth edition, the first octavo edition, is an expansion of Edmund Law's quarto edition, and has set the pattern for all subsequent English Works editions until the present time. It contains all the famous philosophical writings plus a life of the author based on that of le Clerc but using a large number of unpublished letters. For the first time all correspondence is placed together, and the non-correspondence items in Desmaizeaux's Collection are repositioned to follow the relevant works. It contains writings on economics, gardening, and for the first time A History of Navigation . Set in context with a new introduction by Locke scholar John Yolton, this edition remains the preferred choice for many academics today. New. May show some shelfwear. Fine and unread.
