Review:

"Locke is one of the most perplexing if modern philosophers. Although the broad outlines of his empiricist project in the Essay are clear enough, many of the specific topics he treats there such as the source, nature, and function of ideas, the workings of language, personal identity, etc. have perplexed his readers right up to the present. It is precisely on these topics that Sheridan's clear and cogent book offers judicious and helpful guidance." — Thomas M. Lennon, University of Western Ontario, Canada
