Locke, by Thomas Fowler (1832 - 1904)

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/locke-by-thomas-fowler/

John Locke (1632-1704) was an English philosopher and physician who, after Sir Francis Bacon, was one of the first of the British empiricists and an important contributor to Social Contract Theory. In this fine biography, Thomas Fowler writes of Locke's influence on the history of progress and of civilization. "In an age of excitement and prejudice, he set men the example of thinking calmly and clearly...At a time when the chains of dogma were far tighter, and the penalties of attempting to loosen them far more stringent, than it is now easy to conceive, he raised questions which stirred the very depths of human thought. And all this in a spirit so candid, so tolerant, so liberal, and so unselfish, that he seemed to be writing not for his own party or his own times, but for the future of knowledge and of mankind." (Summary by Pamela Nagami, M.D.)

IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process unless you are the BC or PL. Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi Pam,

As I was setting up my notebook page for this project I saw that you have Chapter 10 numbered as Part 1 -- is there supposed to be a second part or is Chapter 10 just one part? Figured I'd check before I fill in all the blanks in my notebook and then have to squeeze another line in later....

Thanks!
Colleen

Hi Colleen,

Section 2 is up:

18:43

https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/locke_02_fowler_128kb.mp3

At 7:11 you will notice I say "1665 dash 6" for 1665-6 to indicate, not a duration in time, but the discrepancy between the old and new calendar style.

My best,

Pam
