An Essay Concerning Humane Understanding, Book IV Of Knowledge And Probability by John Locke (1632 - 1704).

Amy is MC, Craig is BC and we are looking for a DPL

This is the fourth book of John Locke's Essay Concerning Human Understanding. His book deals with knowledge and probability. He asks how far knowledge can go, if there are universal propositions, what are judgment and probability and deals with faith, reason and enthusiasm. (Soupy)
The link takes you to books 3 and 4 of Locke's Essays. We are reading the 4th essay so you can go a little less than halfway down to find that book. Please read the section numbers within the text.
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/10616 Search for Of Knowledge And Probability Synopsis Of The Fourth Book or the title of the section you choose to read
      Use this link for Chapter 19 https://archive.org/details/worksjohnlocke07lockgoog/page/n156
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

Hi Pam

I suppose I could help readers find their sections since the book is composed ot two books :D


The link takes you to books 3 and 4 of Locke's Essays.

Your first line is: Our Knowledge conversant about our Ideas only.
last line is: . But because the memory is not always so clear as actual perception, and does in all men more or less decay in length of time, this, amongst other differences, is one which shows that DEMONSTRATIVE knowledge is much more imperfect than INTUITIVE, as we shall see in the following chapter.

which is the end of chapter 1

Hi Craig,

Section 1 should be 14:24, rather 4:24.

Thanks,
