Abstract

This paper examines the contributions of John Locke to philosophy especially his epistemology and his idea of the primacy of experience as the basis of all knowledge. For Locke, there is a clear distinction between simple and complex ideas. The paper also examines the concept of primary and secondary qualities, his championship of utitilerian values, features of his teachings and the implications of his practical work of teaching on child curriculum and education generally.
