General Conclusion

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents some concluding thoughts from the author. The adventures of Locke's suggestion in France can be described as ‘picaresque’ because of the way this suggestion appears, reappears, is attacked and defended in so many places and in such different contexts. The fact that Locke's suggestion elicited such widespread reactions in France is an indication of his stature as one of the leading English philosophers. The rapid translation into French of his books increased the access to his doctrines.
