Carta sobre la tolerancia

by John Locke

"La tolerancia de aquellos que disienten de otros en materia de religión se aviene tanto al Evangelio y a la razón que parece monstruoso que haya hombres tan ciegos en medio de una luz tan clara." LOCKE, John, Carta sobre la tolerancia. Locke es considerado el fundador del empirismo inglés y se estima que el Ensayo sobre el entendimiento humano(1690) es su obra capital. Pero no sólo fueron absorvidos sus esfuerzos en la teoría del conocimiento. También fue crucial su influencia en la filosofía política y en la teoría de la educación. La polémica desatada por su Carta sobre la tolerancia(1689) nos remite a un entorno sacudido por las luchas políticas y religiosas que, quizás, en algún momento, desesperaron a nuestro autor. Su antídoto es claro: la separación neta y radical entre Estado e Iglesia. Al primero le corresponde el velar por el bienestar de los ciudadanos; la Iglesia, por su parte, debe dedicarse al cuidado de las almas de sus fieles. Tolerancia en materia relgiosa y delimitación estricta del origen y funciones del poder político, establecidas en Dos tratados sobre el gobierno civil(1690). Por ellos se le colocará también en la cuna del liberalismo clásico.

Locke: Political Writings

by John Locke David Wootton

John Locke's Second Treatise of Government (c. 1681) is perhaps the key founding liberal text. A Letter Concerning Toleration, written in 1685 (a year when a Catholic monarch came to the throne of England and Louis XVI unleashed a reign of terror against Protestants in France), is a classic defense of religious freedom. Yet many of Locke's other writings--not least the Constitutions of Carolina, which he helped draft--are almost defiantly anti-liberal in outlook.This comprehensive collection brings together the main published works (excluding polemical attacks on other people's views) with the most important surviving evidence from among Locke's papers relating to his political philosophy. David Wootton's wide-ranging and scholarly Introduction sets the writings in the context of their time, examines Locke's developing ideas and unorthodox Christianity, and analyzes his main arguments. The result is the first fully rounded picture of Locke's political thought in his own words.

Second Treatise of Government

by John Locke C. B. Macpherson

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. To the extent that this is true, these ideologies are ultimately attacks on the ideas that Locke, arguably more than any other, helped to make the universal vocabulary of political discourse.

The Second Treatise of Government and A Letter Concerning Toleration

by John Locke

In The Second Treatise of Government, John Locke answered two objectives: to refute the concept of the monarchy's divine right and to establish a theory reconciling civil liberties with political order. His Letter Concerning Toleration rests on the same basic principles as his political theory; Locke's main argument for toleration is a corollary of his theory of the nature of civil society. The basis of social and political philosophy for generations, these works laid the foundation of the modern democratic state in England and abroad. Their enduring importance makes them essential reading for students of philosophy, history, and political science.

The Second Treatise on Civil Government (Great Books in Philosophy)

by John Locke

As one of the early Enlightenment philosophers in England, John Locke sought to bring reason and critical intelligence to the discussion of the origins of civil society. Endeavoring to reconstruct the nature and purpose of government, a social contract theory is proposed. The Second Treatise sets forth a detailed discussion of how civil society came to be and the nature of its inception. Locke's discussion of tacit consent, separation of powers, and the right of citizens to revolt against repressive governments, has made the Second Treatise one of the most influential essays in the history of political philosophy.

Two Treatises of Government and A Letter Concerning Toleration

by John Locke

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 today, more than three centuries after they were written. The complete texts appear in this volume, 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 invaluable insights into the history of ideas and the enduring influence of Locke's political thought.
