Locke believed that when we are born the mind is like a blank sheet of paper, and all future development depends on how an individual is educated. These ideas were radical at the time, but led to a belief that everyone could be liberated by education. Locke did more than any other single thinker to provide the theoretical foundations of liberal democracy. Indeed, it is doubtful whether any philosopher between Aristotle and Karl Marx has had a greater influence on practical affairs.
