Wesley's Limited Alliance With Lockean Empiricism, Kevin Twain Lowery Sep 2000

Wesley's Limited Alliance With Lockean Empiricism, Kevin Twain Lowery

Faculty Scholarship – Theology

This paper attempts to sketch Wesley’s relation to Lockean empiricism by identifying the key issues that seem to spark his objections to Locke’s Essay. The purpose is not to evaluate the validity of Locke’s positions per se but to locate the theological commitments Wesley wishes to defend and to scrutinize the philosophical assumptions he makes to support them.
