Abstract

The aversion which Locke manifested in "Some Thoughts concerning Education" towards liberal education was neither radical nor new: it represented the outcome of a historical process of a redefinition of gentility, which led to the separation between the gentleman and the scholar in seventeenth century England. This process found in "Some Thoughts" an important echo, even though Locke’s attitude appeared to be much more conservative than that of some of his contemporaries.
