Thanks Craig, I do in fact have a question!

In section 2, in the first paragraph in part 10 it says,
". . . the modes of numbers have every the least difference very clear and perceivable: and though in extension every the least excess is not so perceptible, yet . . . "
To me - admittedly a modern English (American) speaker, this sounds like a typo. Maybe it should be,
". . . the modes of numbers having even the least difference are very clear and perceivable: and though in extension even the least excess is not so perceptible, yet. . . "

Is it best to stick with the text as written? Tempted as I am to do something here, I recognize that may be a slippery slope.

I appreciate your guidance,
Jennifer

That was a great question Jennifer :thumbs:

I checked with the 1753 edition and it has the same words as the one I am using. So ... every least difference is the way Locke put it back in 1689.

the Modes of Numbers have every the least difference very clear and perceiveable: and tho' in Exr tension, every the least Excess is not perceptible

Thanks for secion 13 MorganScorpion :thumbs: Well read.

A few errors noted

Forgot to read introduction at the beinning


7:09 Let any one, with Polemo, take the world; or with the Stoics, the aether, or the sun; or with Anaximenes, the air, to be God; and what a divinity, religion, and worship must we needs have! Forgot to read or the sun; or with Anaximenes, the air

11:46 This gave me the confidence to advance that conjecture, which I suggest, - you read This gives me the confidence to advance that conjecture, which I success,

19:47 I think may be attributed to their ignorance of what was to be found in a very ordinary, despicable stone, I heard tone for stone

24:15 and see whether it will agree to them all; whether our principles will carry us quite through, and not be as inconsistent with one phenomenon of nature, as they seem to accommodate and explain another. Forgot to read And at least that we take care that the name of PRINCIPLES deceive us not, nor impose on us, by making us receive that for an unquestionable truth, which is really at best but a very doubtful conjecture; such as are most (I had almost said all) of the hypotheses in natural philosophy.

27:07 and contemplate their extent and consequences as much as he pleases – read existences for extent

Just stepping in to ask if someone could please be so kind and inform me when the project is catalogued, so that I can finish the preclaimed cover? Somehow the notification does not work for this thread and I want to avoid that you have to wait again :)
Thank you so much. :)
