did not like it
Read from March 10 to December 12, 2012

I hate to give a work like this one star, especially when I recognize there are flashes of brilliance herein: nonetheless, a rudimentary understanding of modern cognitive science and physics blows many of Locke's arguments out of the water. Combined with the dry and repetitive prose, it was a painful read. However, there are some real gems of quotes in here.

I am not going to rush to finish books 3 and 4... (my version is only the first two books).
