Just Now

1. John Locke was born in Somerset, England, August 29, 1632. He was the eldest son of Agnes Keene, daughter of a small-town tanner, and John Locke, an impecunious Puritan lawyer who served as a clerk for justices of the peace. When young Locke was two, England began to stumble toward its epic constitutional crisis. The Stuart King Charles I, who dreamed of the absolute power wielded by some continental rulers, decreed higher taxes without approval of Parliament. They were to be collected by local officials like his father. Eight years later, the Civil War broke out, and Locke’s father briefly served as a captain in the Parliamentary army. In 1649, rebels beheaded Charles I. But all this led to the Puritan dictatorship of Oliver Cromwell. Locke had a royalist and Anglican education, presumably because it was still a ticket to upward mobility. One of his father’s politically connected associates nominated 15-year-old John Locke for the prestigious Westminster School. In 1652, he won a s...

1. Perhaps the most central concept in Locke’s political philosophyis his theory of natural law and natural rights. The natural lawconcept existed long before Locke as a way of expressing the idea thatthere were certain moral truths that applied to all people, regardlessof the particular place where they lived or the agreements they hadmade. The most important early contrast was between laws that were bynature, and thus generally applicable, and those that wereconventional and operated only in those places where the particularconvention had been established. This distinction is sometimesformulated as the difference between natural law and positive law. Natural law is also distinct from divine law in that the latter, inthe Christian tradition, normally referred to those laws that God haddirectly revealed through prophets and other inspired writers. Naturallaw can be discovered by reason alone and applies to all people, whiledivine law can be discovered only through God’s specialrevelati...
