about this story

John Locke was lost his parents. Two years after the death of his father, his only brother, Thomas, died. Locke was left without a family by the time he was in his early thirties. John Locke studied medicine and served as a physician. He met Lord Anthony Ashley Cooper, who was soughing treatment for liver infection at Oxford. Lord Ashley impressed by John’s work he appointed him as his personal physician. In 1667 John moved into Lord Ashley’s home in London. When Lord Ashley’s liver got worse John performed a remarkable operation where he inserted a silver tube into the tumor which allowed it to be drained regularly. This relieved Lord Ashley of so much pain and even elongated his life. John also formed a close relationship with a famous physician known as Thomas Sydenham who became his mentor. Locke writes his essay “An Essay Concerning Human Understanding” after he was 60 years, which inspected the human mind. John lock’s life experience led him to write about personal identity.
