By Ben Saunders VINE VOICE on 21 Sept. 2002
Format: Paperback
I won't go into the depths of Locke studies here. Suffice to say he was the first of the 'British Empiricists'; building on Descartes' ideas and beginning an epistemology that influenced Berkely, Hume and many others. The Essay is a (very) lengthy account of his ideas - in which he begins by denying the possibility of innate ideas and goes on to explain how we come by all our ideas, discussing on the way his influential ideas on personal identity and primary and secondary qualities.
If you want the best scholarly version, it's undoubtedly this - Nidditch's Clarendon Press one, which has become the standard for academics. Granted, you can pick up an unabridged version for half as much (Penguin Classics). All this really has to offer is tons of extra notes - including biography and (very) full textual notes (most of which the average reader will NEVER need). All the same, it is the leading edition for study....

By Sheridan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The expense can really only be justified for people wanting to do in-depth study of the work, since most of what your paying for seems to be the editors meticulous tracking of changes through the different editions of the essay. The essay itself is of course a classic in the Western tradition, though its language and length can make it hard to access for all but the most determined.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never thought I'd read John Locke 8 Sept. 2013
By Jim Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The actual review is this delightful 'warning' that you will be reading this volume for the rest of your life without having finished it. It is user friendly. Anyone who can read will be able to read this book. But more: It's substance is fully contemporary. A very good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Score with Chicks with Locke 23 Aug. 2012
By SteveRR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The reviewers are basically correct - this is a very important book and does use some unusual -to our eyes - formatting.
However, most of you will have read excerpts from this monumental work. If you are serious about this period and even the post-moderns, you deserve to give this book a look in its FULL reading.
The Editor is one of the acknowledged leaders in this area.
Lastly, when you go into your college bar, all your weenie friends with have the abridged versions and you can flash your full and fulsome version - guaranteed to get attention from all present.
Plus it makes a cool 'thwack' when you throw it down on the bar.
