The Blueprint of Locke's Remedial Use of Language (2023)


The article consists in the closing section of an investigation into Locke’s interest in the uses and abuses of words as a topic that allows for gaining access to some more overarching features of his outlook as a distinctively competent polymath from his time and ever since. Following a brief summary of the perspective brought forward in the preceding section of the survey, the first main part of the piece turns to a selection of instances of Locke’s retention of a concern for the issue throughout his major works. The second part tests the extent to which the recovered mode of work could have something to offer in the light of the objectives that contemporary scientific practice and related scholarship is generally taken to serve.
