I do not totally agree with his proposition that only the mind can produce certain knowledge and that our senses are always under the attack of the devil that deceives us. This is yet again the empiricist vs rationalist debate.

A Bibliographical Study. by Charlotte S. Ware It is notoriously dangerous to attempt to define the exact influence exerted by one writer upon another, and it would be inaccurate to say that the common elements in the philosophies of Descartes and Locke are the result of Locke's borrowing.
