Students will engage in close study of the principal political writings of John Locke, the seventeenth-century British philosopher whose views on political liberty helped shape the U.S. Constitution. They will examine the foundations of the modern tradition of freedom, including natural freedom and equality, limited government, the right to property, religious toleration, and the proper education of free citizens.
