Locke and European philosophy

Conference coming up at LSE. I saw Stella Sandford present a paper at the SEP-FEP conference last year which I seem to recall was material from the preface of Balibar’s book mentioned below, and it was pretty interesting stuff:

‘John Locke and European Philosophy’

Monday 11 March, 6.30 – 8pm
Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building, LSE

Locke’s foundational place in the history of British empiricism and liberal political thought is well known, but in what sense is John Locke a modern European philosopher?

ETIENNE BALIBAR, Anniversary Chair in Modern European Philosophy, Kingston University; Emeritus Professor of Moral and Political Philosophy, University of Paris 10 Nanterre and Visiting Professor, Columbia University, in conversation with QUASSIM CASSAM, Professor of Philosophy, Warwick University.

Chair: Stella Sandford, Reader in Modern European Philosophy, CRMEP, Kingston University

This event is organised in anticipation of the publication of Etienne Balibar’s “Identity and Difference: John Locke and the Invention of Consciousness,” edited and with an Introduction by Stella Sandford (Verso, 2013).
