We here at the John Locke Foundation would like to wish our namesake historical figure, John Locke a happy 387th birthday!
John Locke was a 17th-century English political philosopher. He was an intellectual titan, one whose thoughts and ideas can be found throughout our country’s earliest political documents, including and especially the Declaration of Independence.
