1 - 2 weeks availability
Locke's Education for Liberty presents an analysis of the crucial but often underestimated place of education and the family within Lockean liberalism. Nathan Tarcov shows that Locke's neglected work Some Thoughts Concerning Education compares with Plato's Republic and Rousseau's Emile as a treatise on education embodying a comprehensive vision of moral and social life. Locke believed that the family can be the agency, not the enemy, of individual liberty and equality. Tarcov's superb reevaluation reveals to the modern reader a breadth and unity heretofore unrecognized in Locke's thought.
Nathan Tarcov is Professor of Political Science in the Committee on Social Thought, University of Chicago. He is editor of John Locke's "Some Thoughts Concerning Education" and "On the Conduct of Understanding" (1996) and coeditor of The Legacy of Rousseau (1996) and Meanings of Revolution (forthcoming).
