An Essay Concerning Human Understanding Book II by John Locke (1632 - 1704).

Project completion date: March 16, 2019
John Locke was interested in the thinking soul. Here's are some quotes from the book.
I see no reason to believe, that the soul thinks before the senses have furnished it with ideas to think on. The dreams of sleeping men are, as I take it, all made up of the waking man's ideas, though for the most part oddly put together. Can the soul think, and not the man, or a man think, and not be conscious of it? Suppose the soul of Castor separated, during his sleep, from his body, to think apart. Let us suppose too, that it chooses for its scene of thinking the body of another man, v. g. Pollux, who is sleeping without a soul. Nobody car imagine that his soul can think, or move a body at Oxford, whilst he is at London. The question is, whether if the same substance which thinks, be changed, it can be the same person; or, remaining the same, it can be different persons? Whiteness and coldness are no more in snow than pain is.
John Locke wrote four essays on human (or humane) understanding. The first has been recording into LibriVox so I'm adding the second volume. All four are available from Hathi Trust. All of his essays were, and are, very influential. Edward Stillingfleet 1635-1699 (Bishop of Worcester) wrote a Critique of Locke’s ideas and many letters to him. Locke’s Essays inspired Gottfried Leibniz (1646-1716) to write his New Essays Concerning Human Understanding and Victor Cousin analyzed all four books in his 1834 Elements of Psychology. (Craig Campbell)
    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!): https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=iau.31858034136816;view=1up;seq=163 This leads to the first part of the book.
      https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=iau.31858011031923;view=1up;seq=23 This leads to the second part of the book.
    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.

I can set this up for you, I'll be back in a little bit with a MW :D

ETA:

There we go! I'd be happy to shorten the filenames to humanunderstandingvol2 or something like that -- the more characters we type, the bigger the chance that typos creep in. But if you prefer them the way they are, I'm ok with that too. :)

Please holler if you need anything. We'll stay here for a few days before we move over to Readers Wanted

Section 1 was very well read Pam :thumbs:

I noticed I left out the author in the first intro

Beginning "Section [number] of An Essay Concerning Human Understanding Book II by John Locke This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"

I remedied that. Can you add by John Locke to your intro.

3:32 4 forgot Secondly

Thanks Pam.

It seems that you must have read the other fountain twice after the correction at 332.
