British philosopher John Locke made a profound contribution to seventeenth-century thinking about the natural world and the human mind. The Essay begins with a sustained attack against a common, yet varied, view of the day that we come into the world with some sort of knowledge, whether theoretical, moral, or religious. Given the amount of material Locke left behind, it is hard to include everything in a volume with a word count that any press would be willing to publish. The John Locke Society was being formed, Locke Workshops were being held across the US, Canada, and in the UK, and new Locke scholars seemed to be popping up everywhere. Much new and exciting scholarship was emerging.
