This new collection of essays on themes in the work of John Locke, George Berkeley and David Hume is intended to provide a deepened understanding of major issues raised in the Empiricist tradition. Along with The Rationalist Descartes, Spinoza, and Leibniz, edited by Derk Pereboom, it should be especially useful in courses devoted to the history of modern philosophy.
