"Aan excellent book on Locke and natural philosophy. [Anstey] integrates deep archival research and a broad knowledge of the time and place with good judgment and sharp insight. His accounts of Locke's relations to Bacon and Boyle, of Locke's interests in biology, medicine, and chemistry, and of Locke's views on natural history and hypotheses are the fullest and best that I know."--Michael Jacovides, Metascience

Anstey draws from Locke's actual work as a scientist, his correspondence, as well as Locke's published and unpublished manuscripts. The amount of detail in this work is astounding. Anstey makes good use of those details in portraying the richness of Locke's thought and how Locke's views change over time.
