about this story

John Locke was an English philosopher and physician who explored the topics that Descartes had introduced about nature of knowledge and the nature of the self. Everyone has three natural rights, according to him: life, liberty, and property. John Locke's philosophical experience motivated him to support human rights and values. He is considered one of the most influential philosophers of the modern period. He was the founder of liberalism theory and made a significant contribution to modern philosophical empiricism. In the fields of religion, religious tolerance, and educational theory, he was also influential. Locke's "Essay Concerning Human Understanding" (1689) laid out a theory of human knowledge, identity, and self that influenced Enlightenment philosophers greatly. According to John Locke, personal identity, or the self, is based on consciousness rather than the soul or body of the individual. Knowledge is based on the observation of events and memories that lead to a wise judgment. Much of Locke's work was dedicated to the purpose of enlightenment and the development of liberalism.
