The Philosophy of John Norris

W. J. Mander

Abstract

Best known today as one of the earliest critics of John Locke, John Norris (1657-1711) incorporated ideas of Augustine, Malebranche, Plato, the Cambridge Platonists, and the scholastics into an original synthesis that was highly influential on the philosophy and theology of his day. This book presents a study of this unjustly neglected thinker, and the different perspectives he offers on this seminal period in philosophical history.

Keywords: John Locke, John Norris, Augustine, Malebranche, Plato, Cambridge Platonists, philosophical history
