THE CAMBRIDGE COMPANION TO
LOCKE\u2019S \u2018\u2018ESSAY CONCERNING
HUMAN UNDERSTANDING\u2019\u2019
First published in1689, John Locke\u2019sEssay concerning
Human Understandingis widely recognized as among the
greatest works in the history of Western philosophy. The
Essayputs forward a systematic empiricist theory of mind,

detailing how all ideas and knowledge arise from sense experience. Locke was trained in mechanical philosophy, and he crafted his account to be consistent with the best natural science of his day. TheEssay was highly in\ufb02uential, and its rendering of empiricism would become the standard for subsequent theorists. The innovative ideas in this monumental work continue to speak to philosophers in the modern world.

This Companion volume includes \ufb01fteen new essays from leading scholars. Covering the major themes of Locke\u2019s work, they explain his views, while situating the ideas in the historical context of Locke\u2019s day and often clarifying their relationship to ongoing work in philosophy. Pitched to advanced undergraduates and graduate students, it is ideal for use in courses on early modern philosophy, British empiricism, and John Locke.

Lex Newman is associate professor of philosophy at the
University of Utah.
