This volume brings together the principal writings on religious toleration and freedom of expression by one of the greatest philosophers in the Anglophone tradition. It contains not only Locke's canonical Letter Concerning Toleration (1689), but also his early Essay Concerning Toleration (1667), extracts from the Third Letter for Toleration (1692), and a large body of Locke's briefer essays and memoranda on these themes.
