E. J. Lowe is Reader in Philosophy at the University of Durham.Review:
An excellent introduction which absolutely should be read by any student concerned with Locke on these topics..
–Roger Woolhouse, University of York
The idea of such a series is, surely, a welcome one...It is also, as to be expected, invariably clear, stimulating and intelligent. Lowe's book is a very useful one. It should be recommended to any student who wants an introduction to Locke, and the individual chapters should figure on reading lists. It is written in a clear style, stimulating, well-informed and thoughtful in its discussion of Locke and in its own proposals. ... Lowe's book is an excellent start to the new series.
For the student who comes to the Essay, is intrigued by it, and who wants to explore further the implications of Locke's treatment of many of the issues still central to contemporary philosophical debate, Lowe's book is a valuable resource.
