John Locke


(1632 – 1704) An English philosopher and physician regarded as one of the most influential of Enlightenment thinkers, widely known as the Father of Classical Liberalism. Considered one of the first of the British empiricists, he is equally important to social contract theory. His work had a great impact upon the development of epistemology and political philosophy. His writings influenced Voltaire and Rousseau, many Scottish Enlightenment thinkers, as well as the American revolutionaries. His contributions to classical republicanism and liberal theory are reflected in the United States Declaration of Independence.
