  3. John Locke and Enlightenment thought
    List
    Public

    Research Question: To what extent did John Locke influence Enlightenment thought? This question is accompanied by the Archive Collection of Online Library of Liberty, although other Archive Collections have been incorporated including Trove. The primary sources have been primarily located through the Online Library of Liberty whereas the secondary sources have been predominantly located through Trove.


    John Locke was an English philosopher during the 17th century and is often regarded by historians as one of the most influential philosophers of the Enlightenment period. This research question will look at the influence of Locke to the Enlightenment as well as his influences on other philosophers during this time. Through an examination of primary and secondary sources, the exact extent of John Locke’s influence on Enlightenment thought will be analysed and critically examined.


    When considering the exact extent of Locke’s contribution, his ideas must first be identified, as discussed throughout source #1 and #2. These sources were written by Locke during the early years of the Enlightenment. These sources are almost repetitive in nature as they identify key concepts of liberty, natural rights, government and religion, ideas reminiscent of the Enlightenment period as discussed in source #4.


    Source #4 is a crucial source to the research topic as it clearly identifies other philosophers that were influential in this time and were in turn influenced by John Locke. This source offers a critical response to the contributions of Locke to Enlightenment thought with a particular focus on Descartes, as another influential thinker of this time.


    Source #3 accentuates the ideas put forward within source #4 by providing a visual representation of the contributions of John Locke to enlightenment ideals, where Locke is depicted within an oak leaf wreath symbolizing power and wisdom.


    These sources; visual, textual and oral, in combination provide insight to the real extent of John Locke’s contributions to thinking during and after the Enlightenment period. This research will dig into whether the emphasis placed on John Locke’s contributions to Enlightenment thought should be positioned as highly as it has by historians. This list has provided a number of unique primary and secondary sources that can be combined to answer this question sufficiently with reference to Locke’s own writings. Through the analysis of the cited sources, it will be concluded that although John Locke was not the only philosopher that contributed to the Enlightenment period, his writings influenced this period greatly. It is also important to note that although Locke died early on within the period, his contributions lasted long after this time as evident within sources #3 and #4.
