Very difficult reading. Did 17th century people really talk like this was written?
Some sentences were longer than one whole page. Treatise of Civil Government was one one bedrocks for our founding fathers forming our new government. I really marvel at Locke's inquiring mind. He as questions and proceeds to give their answers to things I would never dream of. Truly a great mind! Only gave four star rating because of difficulty...my problem.

For a year and a half I was immersed in the political works of John Locke. He is a true master and a great political philosopher help someone jump into the field. I truly enjoyed these essays and this edition.
