The journal provides a forum for the discussion of the English philosopher John Locke’s ideas and of the theories of authors who influenced him (e.g. Hooker, Descartes, Hobbes, Boyle, Spinoza, Malebranche, Arnaud, Pascal, Cudworth, More, Newton, Shaftesbury) or who were engaged with his thought (e.g. Stillingfleet, Butler, Clarke, Damaris Cudworth, Norris, Astell, Leibniz, Toland, Collins, Clarke, Hume, Reid, Voltaire). The objective of this journal is to reconstruct the crucial aspects of Locke’s thought on a vast range of subjects in different fields (e.g. morals, politics, physics, medicine, epistemology, metaphysics, theology, education, ars excerpendi, travel). The journal aims to encourage dialogue between Italian as well as foreign scholars about the originality, sources, and legacy of Locke’s ideas.
