Today, John Locke is recognized as one of the most important and formative philosophical influences on the modern world. His imprint is still felt in political and legal thought, in educational theory, moral theory and in the theory of knowledge.Lockes key works, "Two Treatises of Government," and the monumental "An Essay Concerning Human Understanding," provoked lively debate when they were first published in 1690 and remain standard texts in undergraduate philosophy courses throughout the English-speaking world and beyond. It is not surprising therefore that Locke scholarship is a burgeoning force in the history of philosophy and that his ideas and arguments are repeatedly alluded to in current philosophical debate. Indeed, since the publication of the first series of "Locke: Critical Assessments" in 1991, Locke research has proceeded apace, and it is now fitting that a second "Critical Assessments" series be published. Of particular importance in recent work on Locke has been research into the colonial contexts of his political writings; a more nuanced and historically grounded approach to Lockes writings on natural philosophy; and a theological turn in Locke scholarship that has centred on the content and reception of his "The Reasonableness of Christianity," Each of these new trends is represented in this second series, as are recent contributions to long-standing debates concerning Lockean interpretation and influence.
