Description du produit

Two of Locke's most mature and influential political writings and three brilliant interpretive essays have been combined here in one volume. Among the most influential writings in the history of Western political thought, John Locke's "Two Treatises of Government" and "A Letter Concerning Toleration" remain vital to political debates more than three centuries after they were written. The complete texts are accompanied by interpretive essays by three prominent Locke scholars. Ian Shapiro's introduction places Locke's political writings in historical and biographical context. John Dunn explores both the intellectual context in which Locke wrote the "Two Treatises of Government" and "A Letter Concerning Toleration" and the major interpretive controversies surrounding their meaning. Ruth Grant offers a comprehensive discussion of Locke's views on women and the family, and Shapiro contributes an essay on the democratic elements of Locke's political theory. Taken together, the texts and essays in this volume offer insights into the history of ideas and the enduring influence of Locke's political thought.

Laslett propose ici une édition importante des deux traités du gouvernement civil avec une introduction qui, par son caractère fouillé, permet une approche de qualité de la pensée de Locke.
De plus, il propose un index des notions utile pour travailler ces deux livres qui sont en fait une seule et même oeuvre.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Worth the time and the money for anyone who wants to better understand what America was REALLY meant to be 26 mai 2016

While it's tough to slog through the LONG sentences and convoluted writing of a 17th century lawyer, THIS is one of the key sources that the Framers of America's Constitution used for the basis of their thinking.
Without John Locke - along with others of the European Enlightenment - the "American Experiment" would likely have never happened.
Worth the time and the money for anyone who wants to better understand what America was REALLY meant to be.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Read to Learn about the Provenances of the Concepts and Ideas of Liberty and Rights of the People of our Modern Day Democracies 22 janvier 2017
Par Sonny Laskin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Good book to learn about how current western systems of government evolved into how it is today from overreaching power of monarchical forms of government over the populace that existed in Western Europe during Locke's time. Locke's concepts of limited government, basic human liberties, private property, consent of the governed and the right to revolutionize against overreaching monarchs formed the basis of revolutions in the 18th & 19th centuries to form our Western civilization's methods and forms of democracy today albeit towards an oligarchical direction. Though I do have to demure to the fact that Locke viewed a slave as having liberty as long as the slaveowner did'nt murder or ill treat the slave beyond the boundaries of the slavery contract. I chalk up this tripe viewpoint up to more a reflection on the inured society to slavery during Locke's age than a reflection on Locke himself. Essential to these antecedent revolutions after Locke was Locke's concept in the second treatise of the consent of the governed to be ruled. It formed and fomented these revolutions to form our present day western democracies. It was nice to read about the thoughts of the grandfather of today's democracies. Only issue I had was it takes a little time and effort to get used to Locke's renaissance English but I think CB Macpherson did an overall good job in editing this book.

Great product. (This is a review of the recording by Knowledge Products, in its Giants of Political Thought series, part of its Audio Classics series, of John Locke's Two Treatises of Government.) This product explains in a very interesting manner the political context of 17th century Britain, in which Locke's two treatises were written. They were not written purely as a theoretical tract. They were actually written during revolutionary plots in which Locke was participating. He was no armchair political theorist. He was knee deep in revolutionary intrigue. This product also discusses the FIRST treatise of government -- on ecclesiastical government, which is rarely read or discussed. It's fascinating. George H. Smith did a great job in writing the script of this work on Locke and his two treatises. This product is recorded professionally by professional voice actors, with a full cast of actors. This makes it more interesting to listen to. I have listened to it probably a dozen times. Each time, I find something interesting.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Introduction to Locke 28 septembre 2013
Par Edward J. Barton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This version of Locke's work has many very solid elements for someone new to the philosophy of liberty. First, the work appears to be fundamentally solid, with well chosen source texts. Second, the introduction and footnotes-which would comprise several hundred pages of text all told - gives the reader new to the philosophy an excellent background and context for the work. Third, the work itself was a seminal component of the American Revolutionary thought and had great influence on the development of the US Constitution and the basis for the Declaration of Independence. Finally, while the text retains many of the 17th century spelling conventions and sentence structure, the actual content is surprisingly approachable for a "heavy" philosopher.

Well worth reading. If the spelling and usage were "translated" into modern English for readability, this would have graded out for 5 stars.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Easily three of the most monumental works in the history of Political Science. 18 novembre 2010
Par Rush Limborg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
It is well known, of course, that John Locke was a major inspiration behind the Founding Fathers. With this book, it is easy to understand why.

In the "First Essay On Government", Locke takes the argument of the "divine right" of kings--and uses a brilliant, clever, and effective combination of Biblical theology and logical argument to completely obliterate that concept.

With that out of the way, Locke turned to write his "Second Essay On Civil Government", where the question is asked: Now that we have disproved any "entitlement" to royalty...where do we go from here? What is the basis for governing a civil society?

The major highlight of this treatise is Chapter 2, in which Locke formally establishes the doctrine of Natural Rights. He starts with the natural state of Man, leading up to the necessary elements of Man's existence--the philisophical necessities, of course, being "rights".

There is an interesting moment where Locke questions whether a citizen of one society should ever be punished for breaking the laws of another socety, even if said citizen is IN that other society. It's worth noting that Locke was quick to note that it is a QUESTION, not a statement of belief. Perhaps it's his idea of a "modest proposal".

Contrary to popular belief, Locke is not a "Poor Man's Hobbes" or a "Confused Man's Hobbes". Locke's views on rights and Liberty have quite a few differences from Hobbes's: while often subtle, they are very important, indeed. It becomes clear while reading Locke's prescriptions for government--including the people's rights to alter ot abolish it--that Locke would not have recommended an authoritarian government of the likes of the Leviathan!

Finally, there is "A Letter Concerning Toleration". Here, Locke tackles the issue of "seperation of church and state". He discusses what it truly means...and how it does NOT mean the weaking of religion that secular progressives of the Left desire it to mean. To the contrary, abolishing a state religion, Locke argues, actually should STRENGTHEN the religious element of a free society.

John Locke was, in short, a man years ahead of his time. It is a tragedy that few, if any, in government have seemed willing to listen to him.
