John Locke

John Locke

To Whom It May Concern:
My name is John Locke, the year is 1672, The Enlightenment Era if you will, my friend Anthony “Ashley” Cooper who has been known as the first Earl of Shaftesbury, a Lord of the realm was just appointed the Lord Chancellor and he has given me the opportunity to become very influential and serve as the secretary of a very powerful board. I have accepted this offer only because this was a payment for a medical service that I had provided for the Lord. I enjoy being called ?Dr. Locke? which makes me wish that I would have finished my studies of medicine. I appreciate the concept of learning and although this is true I feel more comfortable being viewed as a philosopher writer rather than an educator. The period of time is very interesting, political fortunes shift in and out which has sent Shaftesbury to Tower many times. I don?t subscribe to the Divine Right Theory of the law so I am forced to eliminate myself from this situation by escaping these surroundings. I am leaving to learn abroad in France and Holland until the political foes are over or until they don?t affect me
