Behold where we now are: let us advance; let us successively interrogate the second book of the Essay on the Human Understanding, on the origin of the most important ideas, .and we shall see that Locke continually confounds the order of the acquisition of our knowledge with its logical order, and the necessary antecedent of an idea with this idea. I propose to examine at the present in the system of Locke the idea of time, the idea of the infinite, the idea of personal identity, the idea of substance.
