    What an insight into a major epoch for humanity the liminal space between pre and post Enlightenment, pre and post scientific revolution lived as Locke himself lived it Locke s insight into empiricism even while he held fast to his pious upbringing is nothing short of Kuhnian in its radicalness, and he suffered barbs for it in his day Yet this biography is also insightful for revealing what 17th century Europe still did not know For example, at one point Locke postulates that life forms What an insight into a major epoch for humanity the liminal space between pre and post Enlightenment, pre and post scientific revolution lived as Locke himself lived it Locke s insight into empiricism even while he held fast to his pi...

    Very scholarly but I found the rigid chronological structure occasionally irritating What struck me most was how careful Locke was about expressing his views, almost devious in fact, which raises all kinds of interesting questions

    I don t read biographies as a habit, so I have lttle with which to compare this book on its own My purpose, though, was to glean some insight into Locke s life and understand how he came to his conclusions on liberty My hypothesis was that his religious views equating salvation with freedom bled over to his political inclinations, and I found that mosty true, but weakly supported The author wasn t helpful to my thesis in most regards, and awkwardly projected a quixotic claim of homosexuality I don t read biographies as a habit, so I have lttle with which to compare this book on its own...

    Author does a great job staying focused on the man John Locke and didn t overemphasize his philosophical works though they were thoroughly discussed The best takeaway from this book was his definition of true knowledge I have even inherited this into my personal views
