    Default Just so everyone knows

    I am currently reading extensively on Locke, Nietzche, and Mill. Get your rusty knowledge ready. I am looking forward to having some enlightening discussions.

    We are looking forward to more grist for the Mill, so long as no one thinks he's got a Locke on philosophy.

    Sure, I do not have the books in front of me right now but I have Mill's essay on Liberty, Locke's book written by Cambridge publications on his Two Treaties on Government. I also have another book on Locke's philosophies on human body and I have a book about Nietzche's life and philosophy.

    I think those are the main works used to study Locke and Mill.

    matclone,

    Notice the books are pretty cheap. With regard to supply and demand theory my guess is Americans are not interested in reading these books.

    Big, that's one of the great things about the classics. They're very inexpensive. I can buy Locke or Rosseou, or Smith or Keynes, or Doestevsky or Dickens for under $10. By contrast, if I wanted to read Ann Coulter's latest drool, it would cost me $24.95 at my favorite book store. Hmm, that's a tough choice.

    I'll be interested in what you think of Locke's idea of tacit consent.
