2016 Locke Workshop at CUNY Graduate Center April 7-9

2016 Locke Workshop at CUNY Graduate Center April 7-9

This year’s Locke Workshop will feature panels of scholars discussing Locke’s interactions with contemporary supporters and critics including: Damaris Cudworth, Catharine Trotter Cockburn, Stillingfleet, Sergeant, Malebranche, Norris, Mary Astell, and Edwards. Panelists will give short presentations, and then facilitate open discussions of Locke’s philosophical thinking in light of his engagement with, or relationships to, his contemporaries. We hope that the panel discussions will reveal larger patterns regarding the character of Locke’s philosophical thinking, in addition to providing insights regarding specific issues or questions within Locke scholarship.
