    The central principles of what today is broadly known as political liberalism were made current in large part by Locke's "Second Treatise of Government" (1690). The principles of individual liberty, the rule of law, government by consent of the people, and the right to private property are taken for granted as fundamental to the human condition now. Most liberal theorists writing today look back to Locke as the source of their ideas. Some maintain that religious fundamentalism, 'post-modernism', and socialism are today the ... Show more

Locke by himself

by AnnaJeffersonMurphy on 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.

A classic text... in a solid edition.

by arroc on Feb 19, 2009

The format is clean and readable. The editor's preface is informative and brief. The volume itself is very slim, with a glossy cover. For a short work like this in the public domain... I think a cheap volume is a necessity. It would make a good note-taking copy, although the left-right margins are too small for that. There is plenty of room at the top and bottom of the page for writing. As for the text... it really needs no introduction. One of the world's greatest works on Political Theory. If you have not read this, you should.
