    Locke: "Our Knowledge, Which All Consists in Propositions".Ruth Marie Mattern - 1978 - Canadian Journal of Philosophy 8 (4):677 - 695.
    Locke often writes that our knowledge is the perception of the agreement or disagreement of ideas. For example, he refers to “our Knowledge consisting in the perception of the Agreement, or Disagreement of any two Ideas” in the second chapter of the Essay's book on knowledge.

    A puzzling feature of Spinoza's discussion of the good is that it takes place on two different levels whose compatibility seems uncertain.
