I read this as part of my masters class on “Social Contract, Class and Wealth.” While it was shorter than some of our other selections so far, I am not entirely made up about my feelings on Locke. He has become such an important corner stone of what founded our government that it is hard to see things through the appropriate lens. Instead of being awed and shocked by his view of things, I had more of a “yep, that’s how we do things” reaction. I know I’m being a bit blase. Actually, he quoted a philosopher named Hooker quite a bit so I’m surprised we don’t hear about the guy that influenced Locke more often. Full review.
