About the Author

Andrew Pyle is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Bristol.


"A really superb introduction to Locke's work. It is highlyrecommended both for students and scholars of early modernphilosophy, not least because of the refreshingly coherent andunified picture it presents of the thought one of England s'premier league' philosophers." Metascience "This book is an excellent commentary on the major areas ofLocke s philosophy. It is informed with a deep respect forthe complexity of Locke s thought and a wide reading in thesophisticated contemporary literature, both on Locke and morewidely." John Rogers, Keele University "A superb introduction to the philosophy of John Locke. It isbalanced and insightful in its interpretations and displays a keengrasp of the whole sweep of Locke s philosophy. While thereis much here for the scholar, this book is just the right lengthand pitch for an undergraduate student text." Peter Anstey, University of Otago, New Zealand "A. J. Pyle has written an excellent book on the philosophy of JohnLocke. It is thorough, scholarly, historically informed, lucidlywritten, provocative and engaging. It leads the reader throughthorny and conceptually difficult material with an effortlessfluidity that neither sacrifices precision nor loses the reader inminutiae. This volume should be of interest to undergraduates,graduate students and non-specialists who are interested in Lockeand his contribution to Western philosophy. I highly recommendit." Jan-Erik Jones, Southern Virginia University
