Shaftesbury Society is named after the 1st earl of Shaftesbury, Anthony Ashley Cooper (1621-1683). Lord Shaftesbury was John Locke’s patron. From the time of Locke and Shaftesbury’s acquaintance they were steadfast in their intellectual pursuits and philosophy. Together, Shaftesbury and Locke wrote The Fundamental Constitutions of Carolina in 1669.
