Informations and abstract

Keywords: Locke, Slavery, Colonialism, Dominion

This article aims to add to a recently growing literature on John Locke and the ideology of colonialism by concentrating on his arguments relating to slavery. The essay contends that Locke’s seemingly contradictory philosophical attack on slavery and his practical involvement with the institution can be made consistent by recognizing the deployment of «slavery» in plural discursive regimes.
