Exceptionally well written, this book represents a major contribution to Lockean scholarship. An original approach. CHOICE An original, perceptive, and demanding contribution to the debate on interpretation that is at the center of recent literature on liberal politics. -- John A. Gueguen, Illinois State University Perspectives on Political Science The best book on the foundations of Locke's moral and political doctrine... This is an important contribution... Forges ahead to recover a very philosophical and prudent Locke, who emerges as still the best philosophical account of the liberal regime...
