      1) الجزء الذي يتعلق بآراء لوك السياسية ممل , و لم أفهم منه الكثير . 2) الجزء المخصص لآراءه حول المعرفة البشرية - على صغر ما خصص له من حجم - كان ممتعا , موجزا , واضحا لأبعد حد .و لم أتكلف العناء في فهمه . 3) إن ما يميز لوك شجاعته الفكرية , و إيمانه بوجود الحقيقة التي هي عكس الزيف - كما يعب [...]

      إن أعظم ما فى فلسفة جون لوك هما أمران اولهما هو عمق إدراكه والذى إستنتج منه صعوبة إجماع بنى البشر على فكرة معينة وثانيهما هو إيمانه بقدرة العقل البشرى على الوصول إلى المبادىء الأخلاقية التى يتعين عليه ان يبحث عنها بإستمرار .ثم تأتى محاولة لوك لصياغة الأسس العملية الجديدة للع [...]

    4. Sam Strickland on said:

      Dunn thoroughly explains and analyzes Locke’s philosophy as explicated in Locke’s major works in a few short pages. Dunn, in the end, highlights the great failure Locke’s epistemological project, but he also affirms Locke as an example of intellectual courage. He was a man who believed in truth and thought it work the seeking. That’s not such a horrible note on which to end 2017.

    5. Daniel Wright on said:

      John Locke's two most important works - the Two Treatises of Government and the Essay Concerning Human Understanding - seem, on the face of it, to deal with two different subjects, respectively, politics and epistemology. But one of the most fascinating things that this dense and erudite book reveals is that they are really just separate ways of answering one question. Locke does not ask, 'How can we know things?' and then, 'What should we do?', but rather, 'How can we know what we should do?' H [...]

    6. Afshin on said:

      In spite of the its title, it's quite a non-brief comprehensive look at Locke, John Dunn walks through all aspects of Locke’s life and works with such a calm and thorough manner which makes you think how simple is the whole thing. While most of the first part on Locke’s political view seems to be historical, I personally found the second part in which Dunn deals with Lock’s theory about Knowledge, belief and faith, still relevant and thought-provoking. Although one has to accept that Locke [...]

    7. mkh96 on said:

      The book is more of a historical background to Locke's political works, rather than a discussion of its themes and philosophy.Dunn's writing style is very unclear. His paragraphs are longwinded, and oftentimes, difficult to interpret.

    8. Christopher Holiday on said:

      ridiculously hard to read. Perhaps its lockes style but Id hardly call this introduction comprehensive. complex ideas are given in a few words. there is very unclear path of developmental thought.

      Definitely not my favorite philosopher, so far. I doubt he ever will be in my top-tier. Locke is just not doing it for me. Still, the book is well-written, informative, and concise.
