The de-voicing of society : why we don't talk to each other anymore by John L Locke ( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Information Age has arrived - but not in person. Technology is overwhelming us with information, much of it unwanted, driving out the sound of human voices. We now spend our days exchanging factoids, often in print, leaving us little time to "just talk." But it's ordinary social talking, including gossip and small talk, that keeps us together. If we lose these intimate forms of self-expression, says John Locke, we lose more than we realize. The tradition of communities gathering to publicly discuss and debate important issues seems to be giving way to isolated individuals communicating electronically from the privacy of their homes. In every aspect of our lives, vocal intimacy is on the wane. To compensate, we turn on TV and radio talk shows to hear other people talk. Talking has become America's leading spectator sport. The De-Voicing of Society is a provocative look at the world we live in. Thought-provoking and troubling in its implications, it will leave readers wanting to ring the neighbors' doorbell and invite them over for dinner
Duels and duets : why men and women talk so differently by John L Locke ( Book )
14 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Why do men and women talk so differently? And how do these differences interfere with communication between the sexes? In search of an answer to these and other questions, John Locke takes the reader on a fascinating journey, from human evolution through ancient history to the present, revealing why men speak as they do when attempting to impress or seduce women, and why women adopt a very different way of talking when bonding with each other, or discussing rivals. When men talk to men, Locke argues, they frequently engage in a type of 'dueling', locking verbal horns with their rivals in a way that enables them to compete for the things they need, mainly status and sex. By contrast, much of women's talk sounds more like a verbal 'duet', a harmonious way of achieving their goals by sharing intimate thoughts and feelings in private."--

Of civil government : second treatise by John Locke ( Book )
1 edition published in 1955 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
John Locke's theory of natural law and social contract has exerted great influence in England, France, and the United States. Here, in his most influential political work, Locke begins describing a "state of nature," where there is no government. He argues that in this condition, human beings have rights and duties under natural law, including the right to own property. However, he argues that without any authority to arbitrate disputes, punish wrongs, or enforce obligations, the state of nature "is full of continual dangers." People therefore form a social contract to establish government, for the purpose of protecting their property. Locke thus consistently maintains that a government is based on the consent of the governed. The results of this include the principles that fundamental rights predate government and that a government which fails to respect those natural rights loses legitimacy
