FIRST EDITION OF LOCKE'S MONUMENTAL WORK, a critical assessment of the origins, nature, and limits of human reason, which was to remain the single most influential work in European philosophy for at least one hundred years. Locke laboured for nearly two decades on his investigation of "the certainty and the adequacy of human knowledge," concluding that "though knowledge must necessarily fall short of complete comprehension, it can at least be 'sufficient'; enough to convince us that we are not at the mercy of pure chance, and can to some extent control our own destiny" (PMM).
