"Studying this excellent edition of these works by Locke may thus not merely develop understanding of past ideas and controversies but provoke reflection on profound questions that as yet await convincing answers." - David A. Pailin, Journal of Theological Studies
"edited with meticulous care by Victor Nuovo ... heavily and helpfully annotated, providing thorough historical background on even the most obscure references." - John Perry, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
