    A rather peculiar read that is mostly about educating a child, all from what to eat to how to teach them languages. Mostly not very interesting. Sometimes funny. I read the Hackett edition with “Of the Conduct of the Understanding” that I found much more interesting. Even if this is more of an aside Locke, it still gives an idea of the diversity of his thought and what he used his mind on and clearly he was prepared on life and rising children. Parts of it was definitely very interesting but in A rather peculiar read that is mostly about educating a child, all from what to eat to how to teach them languages. Mostly not very interesting.

Parts of it was definitely very interesting but in total it’s a difficult recommendation to any person really, as a lot of things seems to be outdated in our time.

    In particular, it is Locke's Of the Conduct of the Understanding that I focus on with this review. This short work explains what Locke was trying to do in all his political philosophy. As such, it is indispensable to read if one wishes to understand Locke's works, and it is often overlooked by his contemporary critics.

    These books are a great tool for understanding the counterpoise to Plato's idea of freedom as a connection to the ultimate Good. Locke develops another understanding entirely, and it's pretty valid. These books are worth looking at too if you're interested in the history of education or in child development.

    For the 2017 NEH Philosophers of Education seminar. Slightly a slog -- not hard to read, but lots of repetition -- but I'm really glad to have read this foundational essay.
