God, Locke, and Equality

Christian Foundations in Locke's Political Thought

God, Locke, and Equality

Jeremy Waldron, one of the leading political philosophers of our time, looks at the principle of equality in the thought of John Locke, and the extent to which this is grounded in Christian principles. Throughout the text, Waldron discusses contemporary approaches to equality and rival interpretations of Locke, making his book unusually accessible and intellectually exciting. It will be of interest to philosophers, political theorists, lawyers and theologians around the world. Jeremy Waldron is the Maurice and Hilda Friedman Professor at Columbia Law School and Director of Columbia's Center for Law and Philosophy. Waldron has taught and lectured at UC Berkeley, Princeton University, Edinburgh University, Oxford University and Cambridge University. His books include The Dignity of Legislation (Cambridge, 1999), The Right to Private Property (Oxford, 1988) and The Law (Routledge, 1990). Waldron contributes to the London Review of Books and the New York Times Book Review.


 Reviews:

"Extremely well-written and detailed, Waldron's God, Locke and Equality provides a nuanced treatment that deftly handles the complexity of Locke's corpus and yet manages to provide a non-anachronistic and largely coherent version of Locke's treatment of basic equality."
-Philosophy in Review

"This is a fascinating book[...]God, Locke, and Equality is a challenging and fascinating read."
-First Things

"Mr. Waldron's Locke reverberates far beyond the boundaries of this book. Readers of the Scriblerian can learn from Mr. Waldron to think of Locke's trinity of religion, politics, and philosophy as central to his legacy and the compound of religion and politics as foundational to his philosophy."
-Richard E. Brantley, University of Florida, The Scriblerian
