On September 10, 2016, I finished blogging my way through John Stuart Mill's On Liberty. I wrote close to one blog post per paragraph of On Liberty every two weeks for more than three years (beginning January 27, 2013). Links for those posts are collected inJohn Stuart Mill’s Defense of Freedom.
Since then, I have been blogging my way through another classic on the logic of freedom: John Locke's 2d Treatise on Government: “On Civil Government.” Having blogged my way through chapters 1—3, it is time to collect the links to those posts. There are many more John Locke posts to come, from Chapters 4—19.
I have learned a lot from writing these posts. I hope you learn some interesting ideas from reading them.
Chapter I. The Introduction
Chapter II. Of the State of Nature
Chapter III. Of the State of War
In addition to the posts above traversing the Second Treatise in order, I have one earlier post based on John Locke's Second Treatise:
