One of the major works of John Locke (1632-1704), this detailed and comprehensive guide is mainly concerned with moral education. While concentrating on its role in creating a responsible adult and on the importance of virtue as a transmitter of culture, it also ranges over such practical topics as the effectiveness of physical punishment, how best to teach foreign languages, table manners, and varieties of crying. This critical edition is based on the third (1695) edition, and includes variants from the first five editions, from the Harvard University Library and the British Library drafts, and from Locke's correspondence to Edward Clarke and his wife.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The text now published, essentially the expanded third edition, is very unlikely ever to be superseded ... Readers seeking the perfect text of Locke's book will find it here.' Times Literary Supplement
'As befits their standing in the Locke community, the Yoltons have also given us a beautifully prepared text ... Again the text is presented with model clarity ... the Yoltons clearly recognize that finally having a good edition of this very important Lockean piece far outweighs the value of any introduction.' Richard Kroll, University of California, Irvine
