Locke's Essay and the Rhetoric of Science

Synopsis

"With the help of Locke's notebooks, letters, and journals, Peter Walmsley reconstructs Locke's scientific career, including his early work with the chemist Robert Boyle and the physician Thomas Sydenham. He demonstrates too how the Essay embodies in its form and language many of the preoccupations of the science of its day, from the emerging discourses of experimentation and empirical taxonomy to developments in embryology and the history of trades. Widely researched, Locke's Essay and the Rhetoric of Science constitutes an important new reading of Locke, one that shows both his brilliance as a writer and his originality in turning to science to effect a radical re-invention of the study of the mind."
