John Locke: The Father of Liberalism

Jon Hersey

Presented at: TOS-CON 2019

Date: Aug 07, 2019

In the realm of life-serving philosophy, few have contributed as much as John Locke. America’s founders stood on his shoulders, putting into practice his ideas on natural rights, justified revolution, constitutional government, separation of powers, and freedom of conscience. Locke was also seminal to the Scottish Enlightenment, which would fuel the Industrial Revolution and vital philosophic discourse throughout Europe.

Jon Hersey will tell the story of the “Father of Liberalism,” discuss his contributions to our freedom and prosperity, and highlight Lockean principles that can help us to advance the Enlightenment and live in it today.
