9780521548908: John Locke and the Origins of Private Property: Philosophical Explorations of Individualism, Community, and Equality

John Locke's attempt to justify private property is one of the central elements in his political philosophy. Matthew Kramer's new book explores in depth the Lockean theory of property, along with many other aspects of Locke's political thought. Drawing on the techniques of analytic philosophy, Kramer offers some rigorous and extensive techniques of Locke's arguments. While subsequently investigating the consequences of the shortcomings in Locke's reasoning, Kramer maintains that our understanding of Locke's political vision must change considerably. Kramer's book will be of interest to political philosophers, legal philosophers, and intellectual historians.

Review:

"In this excellent work, Kramer persuasively argues that Locke's views actually support the thesis that the Enlightenment's leading proponent of individualism was a communitarian or collectivist....well organized, closely argued, and a worthwhile contribution to both Lockean scholarship and the larger liberalism-communitarian debate." R.F. White, Choice

"...[Kramer's] book on Locke provides many interesting objections that students of Locke cannot afford to ignore." The Philosophical Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. John Locke s labor theory of property is one of the seminal ideas of political philosophy and served to establish its author s reputation as one of the leading social and political thinkers of all time. Through it Locke addressed many of his most pressing concerns, and earned a reputation as an outstanding spokesman for political individualism - a reputation that lingers widely despite some partial challenges that have been raised in recent years. In this major new study Matthew Kramer offers an extensive critique of the labor theory and investigates the consequences of its downfall. With incisive analyses of the merits and failings of many aspects of Locke s political thought, Kramer advances a powerful challenge to Locke s image as an individualist. Employing a rigorously philosophical methodology, but remaining aware of the insights generated by historical approaches to Locke, Kramer concludes that Locke s political vision was in fact profoundly communitarian.
