This edition containing two of Locke's shorter, non-political treatises would be invaluable to anyone who is studying his massive "Essay Concerning Human Understanding", as it expands and examines the themes in here. Pages have modest margins that are easy to write in and the introductin is good.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent edition of two works by John Locke that are necessary to understand his philosophy. Of the Conduct of the Understanding is one of the most important works by Locke, and is often overlooked by Locke scholars. In it, he succinctly explains his worldview that is behind his other writings (esp. The Essay, but also works such as the Two Treatises, etc.). This is a must read for anyone wanting to understand Locke's philosophy.

Some Thoughts Concerning Education is also an important work to understand what kind of citizen he envisioned should make up civil societies. These are a collection of letters he wrote to a friend about raising children. In it, we can see what kind of training children require to participate in civil society, according to Locke.

Also, by reading both works, the reader can see how Christian ideas are an important foundation of Locke's worldview.

I highly recommend this edition of these works by Locke!

The question is whether this is an adequate alternative to James Axtell's now out of print and rather expensive if purchased used volume. The answer is yes, it's a Hackett good value, and needs to be available for serious students and scholars. Any good library has Axtell where the introduction can be read or copied.

At this late stage in my teaching career I have decided to start reading some of the 'classics' of teaching thought. Locke was certainly a good place to start and his argument for 'getting students to a place where they become willing learners' certainly inspired me to make some changes to the way we teach foreign language.
