Second treatise of government by John Locke( )

116 editions published between 1689 and 2021 in English and held by 4,708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central principles of what today is broadly-known as political liberalism were made current in large part by Locke's "Second Treatise of Government" (1690). The principles of individual liberty, the rule of law, government by consent of the people, and the right to private property are taken for granted as fundamental to the human condition now. Most liberal theorists writing today look back to Locke as the source of their ideas. Some maintain that religious fundamentalism, 'post-modernism', and socialism are today the only remaining ideological threats to liberalism
A letter concerning toleration by John Locke( )

343 editions published between 1689 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 4,354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Locke argued that religious belief ought to be compatible with reason, that no king, prince or magistrate rules legitimately without the consent of the people, and that government has no right to impose religious beliefs or styles of worship on the public. Locke's defense of religious tolerance and freedom of thought was revolutionary in its time. Even today, his letter poses a challenge to religious intolerance, whether state-sponsored or originating from religious dogmatists. Based on both Locke's original Latin and the seventeenth-century English translation of William Popple, this edition offers a reader-friendly version that remains loyal to the original text. In addition to a forty-page introduction that situates the Letter in its historical and philosophical contexts, this edition includes excerpts from writings on religious toleration by William Penn, Baruch Spinoza, Pierre Bayle, and Samuel von Pufendorf, as well as generous selections from the famous Locke-Proast debates on religious toleration. -- Publisher website

The reasonableness of Christianity : as delivered in the Scriptures by John Locke( )

130 editions published between 1695 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 2,594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1695 John Locke published The Reasonableness of Christianity, an enquiry into the foundations of Christian belief. He did so anonymously, to avoid public involvement in the fiercely partisan religious controversies of the day. In the Reasonableness Locke considered what it was to which all Christians must assent in faith; he argued that the answer could be found by anyone for themselves in the divine revelation of Scripture alone. He maintained that the requirements of Scripture were few and simple, and therefore offered a basis for tolerant agreement among all Christians, and the promise of peace, stability, and security through toleration." "This is the first critical edition of the Reasonableness: for the first time an authoritative annotated text is presented, with full information about sources, variants, amendments, and the publishing history of the work. Also provided in the editorial notes are cross-references, references to other works by Locke, definitions of terms, and other information conducive to an understanding of the text." "In his editorial introduction John Higgins-Biddle investigates how Locke's ideas developed, and offers a critical assessment of the three main contemporary and subsequent interpretations of Locke's religious thought, all of which are shown to be unsatisfactory."--Jacket

"A Letter Concerning Toleration and Other Writings brings together the principal writings on religious toleration and freedom of expression by one of the greatest philosophers in the Anglophone tradition: John Locke. The son of Puritans, Locke (1632-1704) became an Oxford academic, a physician, and, through the patronage of the Earl of Shaftesbury, secretary to the Council of Trade and Plantations and to the Lords Proprietors of Carolina. A colleague of Robert Boyle and Isaac Newton and a member of the English Royal Society, Locke lived and wrote at the dawn of the Enlightenment, a period during which traditional mores, values, and customs were being questioned
Two treatises of government : in the former, the false principles and foundation of Sir Robert Filmer and his followers are detected and overthrown, the latter is an essay concerning the true original, extent, and end of civil government by John Locke( )

105 editions published between 1690 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Widely considered to be the father of liberalism, John Locke was a leading philosopher of the Enlightenment. His Two Treatises of Government was written during the period of Whig opposition to Charles II and James II in the 1680s. Published a year after the Glorious Revolution of 1688 brought William and Mary to the throne, it offers a theory of natural law that distinguishes between legitimate and illegitimate governments and argues for the legitimacy of revolt against tyrannical governments. Important contributions to Enlightenment thought, these ideas remain influential today. In this reprint of the third edition (1689), the last edition published during Locke's lifetime, Locke espouses radical theories that influenced the ideologies of the American and French revolutions and became the basis for the social and political philosophies of, Rousseau, Voltaire, and the founding fathers of the United States, especially Hamilton, Jefferson, and Madison. In the first treatise, Locke aims to refute the doctrine of the patriarchal and absolute right of the divine right of kings doctrine put forth by Robert Filmer's Patriarcha. He examines key biblical passages to prove that scripture does not support Filmer's premise. The second treatise offers Locke's positive theory of government, in which he establishes a theory that reconciles the liberty of the citizen with political order. His basic premise is founded on the independence of the individual. He declares that men are born free and equal in their rights and that wealth is the product of labor. In his revolutionary theory of the social contract he proposes that a legitimate government must preserve the rights to life, liberty, health and property of its citizens, and prosecute and punish those in violation of those rights--From publisher description
Locke on toleration by John Locke( )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Letter Concerning Toleration is an English translation of a Latin work, the Epistola de Tolerantia, that John Locke wrote towards the end of the year 1685, while living - often in hiding - in the Dutch Republic. The Epistola was not however published until 1689, after Locke's return to England, and the English translation followed very shortly after. It soon met with a critical reply, in a pamphlet written by the Oxford chaplain Jonas Proast, which was to launch a polemical exchange in the course of which Locke wrote three further defences of his argument for toleration. Unlike the Epistola/Letter (hereafter: Letter), which is intense and compactly expressed, these defences are lengthy and often repetitive. But they comprise Locke's most fully elaborated statement of his case; they are valuable, too, because the pressure of controversy led him to clarify the priorities among his arguments"--
