Topics include Locke and his idea of thinking matter; the recovery of Locke's library; his understanding of the Law of Nature and its implications; Berkeley's philosophy and his conception of common sense; the connection between reason and revelation in some early eighteenth-century writers; and the post-modernist crude misrepresentation of the Enlightenment.
