Lockean Ideas, Overview and Foundations
Locke had no clear metaphysic of ideas. Ideas ought not to be reified, but Locke sometimes did this. In this chapter, ideas are presented as tropes. Locke put ideas to work in perceiving and imagining, thinking, meaning, a priori knowledge, and classifying. Different ways in which an idea might represent something is discussed.
