    I don t read biographies as a habit, so I have lttle with which to compare this book on its own My purpose, though, was to glean some insight into Locke s life and understand how he came to his conclusions on liberty My hypothesis was that his religious views equating salvation with freedom bled over to his political inclinations, and I found that mosty true, but weakly supported The author wasn t helpful to my thesis in most regards, and awkwardly projected a quixotic claim of homosexuality I don t read biographies as a habit, so I have lttle with which to compare this book on its own My purpose, though, was to glean some insight into Locke s life and understand how he came to his conclusions on liberty My hypothesis was that his religious views equating salvation with freedom bled over to his political inclinations, and I found that mosty true, but weakly supported The author wasn t helpful to my thesis in most regards, and awkwardly projected a ...

    Author does a great job staying focused on the man John Locke and didn t overemphasize his philosophical works though they were thoroughly discussed The best takeaway from this book was his definition of true knowledge I have even inherited this into my personal views
