What little there was in the way of logical inquiry from about to about was. Semantic Scholar profile for John Rawls, with 95 highly influential citations and 98 scientific research papers.

Here, we leave aside epistemological and ontological aspects of Locke's theory and focus exclusively on its semantic features. By "semantic" we mean, the relation between words and ideas: "Words in their primary and immediate signification, stand for nothing, but the ideas in the mind of him that uses them" (Locke, , III, ii, 2).Author: Maziar Chitsaz, Seyyed Mohammad Ali Hodjati. This paper offers an epistemic defense of empathy, drawing on John Locke's theory of ideas. Locke held that ideas of shape, unlike ideas of color, had a distinctive value: resembling qualities in Author: Walter Ott.
