"The volume presents an excellent new critical edition of the Latin text . . . which draws upon all three extant manuscripts, preserving the original foliation and reporting, in an elaborate apparatus criticus, all textual problems, variants, and authorial emendations. . . . In short, this important philosophical text is rendered here with the sort of exquisite care and rigor that one rarely founds outside the field of classical philology. . . . It is fair to say that the reader . . . will have as unimpeded an access to Locke's original thought and expression as is possible. . . . It belongs in the library of all who have a serious interest in Lockean thought or in the emergence of the modern moral perspective."—Review of Metaphysics
"This edition has been edited and translated with meticulous and sympathetic care. The work represents an unusual and admirable collaboration of two eminent classicists with a distinguished historian of political thought. The three have brought their diverse talents to bear on a text that is of the greatest importance for our understanding of Locke, of the foundations of modern liberal thought, and of the meaning as well as the historical evolution of the idea of natural law."—Thomas L. Pangle, The University of Texas at Austin
