Locke by himself Jan 7, 2010
As a scholar I appreciate to read from the classics whenever it is possible. Locke is no exception, his writing to this day is clear, straightforward and believe me some politicians would be better informed to read Locke from this old edition. Reading extracts of his work for university texts takes away the connection with his whole thought, so avoid doing that. On the other hand, old editions have the beauty of not taking liberty with classical texts putting words or re-creating sentences just for commercial purposes. That is the main reason why I do not reach for my pocket to pay for new translations or writers' commentaries of great classics if I can read the author himself/herself. Highly recommended.
