His Philosophical Thought

This book is a general introduction to the philosophy of John Locke, one of the most influential thinkers in modern times. Nicholas Jolley aims to show the fundamental unity of Locke's thought in his masterpiece, the Essay Concerning Human Understanding. In this work Locke advances a largely coherent and consistent theory of knowledge; as against Descartes he argues that knowledge is possible to the extent that it concerns essences which are constructions
of the human mind. Locke's famous discussions of individual topics, such as substance, personal identity, and free will, are all designed to contribute to the goal of analysing the nature and limits of
knowledge. The book ends with a chapter on Locke's political philosophy which underlines the interest in promoting a more tolerant society that is common to both the Essay and the Two Treatises of Government.
