Resumen

MONTES L., Leonidas. De la tolerancia, su contexto y una posible relación con el "nombre general" de propiedad en John Locke. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2004, vol.24, n.2, pp.142-158. ISSN 0718-090X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-090X2004000200008.

The purpose of this paper is twofold. First, by recovering the historical atmosphere in which Locke lived, the aim is to show that his thought was very much influenced by the general context of England during the second half of the seventeenth century. Second, after analizing the context that shaped his Essay on Tolerance and his Letter on Tolerance, and the main differences between both works, a brief analysis of Locke's complex concept of property in his second Treatise will follow. It will be argued that a different reading of property that takes into account the broader classical meaning of "propriety", which would be consistent with Locke's definition of what he terms by the `general name' of property (`Lives, Liberties and Estates'), could entail individual liberty in religious matters. If this interpretation is feasible, i.e., if Locke's concept of propriety could comprise freedom of consciousness in religious matters, then Locke's civil society should necessarily entail tolerance.
