    Locke's Theory on Primary and Secondary Qualities Locke is interested in the role of experience in the search for knowledge. He is an empiricist. He believes that our senses are the only basis for knowledge. He sees the human mind as white paper, void of all characters without any ideas prior to experience. (pg. 104) In order to understand Locke's conception of primary and secondary qualities we must focus on five key points. First, I will examine what ideas are and how they are caused by qualit...

    As man progressed through the various stages of evolution, it is assumed that at a certain point he began to ponder the world around him. Of course, these first attempts fell short of being scholarly, probably consisting of a few grunts and snorts at best. As time passed on, though, these ideas persisted and were eventually tackled by the more intellectual, so-called philosophers. Thus, excavation of the external world began. As the authoritarianism of the ancients gave way to the more liberal v...

    History tells us very little of Titus Lucretius Cards, but one can see from reading his work that he has a strong dislike towards religious superstition, which he claims is the root of human fear and in turn the cause of impious acts. Although he does not deny the existence of a god, his work is aimed at proving that the world is not guided or controlled by a divinity.

    Philosophy Philosophy Berkeley Due, mozilla Philosophy The initial groundwork for Berkeley's position is the truism that the materialist is a skeptic. In the writing of his three dialogues, Berkeley develops two characters: Hylas (the materialist) and Philonous (Berkeley himself).
