Editorial Reviews

Review

"I highly recommend Locke's seventy-five writings here..." S.V.H., Ethics

"...the very existence of a collection of this breadth with this sort of documentation is so remarkable that it seems wrong to criticize it. It is an excellent idea well executed." Ruth Sample, Philosophy in Review

Book Description

This book brings together a comprehensive collection of the writings of one of the greatest philosophers in the western tradition. Along with five of Locke's major essays, seventy shorter essays are included that stand outside the canonical works which Locke published during his lifetime. For the first time students will be able to fully explore the evolution of Locke's ideas concerning the philosophical foundations of morality and sociability, the boundary of church and state, the shaping of constitutions, and the conduct of government and public policy.

Product was in perfect condition. It has quite a selection of Locke's essays, but the two treatises on government are conspicuously absent. Not that it mattered to me since I own a copy of the second one (the only one I needed for class) anyway.

Want to know how perverted the meaning of the term "separation of church and state..." has become, it's in this book. John Locke's poignant philosophical explanations of the inter-relation between natural and civil law,the limits of church and government authority and more, written in the 17th century are a refreshing rather than antiquated reminder of what "good governance" really means to a free people.

I thought that the preface could have been written to surmount the many challenges related to the issues of the 17th century with more clarity and then related to the present. It's very interesting material, nevertheless. I was particularly curious about Locke's opinions on what he calls a meddling government. Governments today suffer from an ideology that believes bigger, mismanaged government projects are their goal. Their primary motivation is to be reelected. Meddling has resulted in massive debt, printing cash and higher taxes. Yet, programs like Medicare, Social Security, Military spending, bridges to nowhere, the post office are riddled in total chaos that includes enormous unfunded pension costs, programs fraught with abuse and fraud, It's frightfully apparent that any program with oversight of the government is mismanaged from the outset and an ongoing burden on taxpayers. Locke’s foresight and concerns are a testimony to the age old problems of today.
