Editorial Reviews

Review


"Impressive for its thorough scholarship....This study contributes to our better understanding of Locke, his ideas, and his place int he history of Western thought."--The Journal of Religion


"This very readable and intriguing text maintains that a consistent theme can be drawn in Locke's Essays that reflects his belief that Christianity need not be inconsistent with a view that human nature is educable....Spellman's very good treatment of the religious themes in English thought contemporary to Locke provides a very strong study of the impact that Broad-Church approaches had on Locke....A clear statement that exhibits considerable historical thoroughness and an admirable writing style."--Choice


"This study, enriched by numerous citations from seveteenth-century theologians either friendly or inimical to Locke, provides a useful caveat to anyone tempted to merge Locke entirely into the Enlightenment."--American Historical Review

Format: Hardcover
Not so much of a review really but a hearkening to what is an interesting title.
Having read Philosophy - I'd never realised that Locke ever engaged with the problem if problem there is. Admittedly Locke was a High Tory, witness his prose. Perhaps I'm jumping the gun - the author may want to link the thought of Locke with thoughts on Depravity - perhaps give a contemporary bent to that thinker vis a vis our present society - if depraved we are.
Mind you, given the historical nature of the author's other works sounds unlikely. Though history is written as mirror to the present, often.
Still - intrigued by title - stands out from others - must look it up in Bodleian .....perhaps.
