England was a republic, and Locke’s tutor, William Cole, was described as a “fanatic” although to Royalists all Puritans were fanatics. The natural course of Locke’s life now pointed toward ordination in the ministry, as the statutes for a Student required, and then either remaining a university tutor or taking a parish or perhaps becoming chaplain in a great household. He held the posts of tutor, praelector in Greek and rhetoric, and censor in moral philosophy (1661–1667). His role was pastoral as well as pedagogic in his oversight of pupils: young men who typically became country gentlemen or entered the legal, medical, clerical, or teaching professions.
Quite simply, “the magistrate hath nothing to do with the good of men’s souls,” a position he would embody in the Letter Concerning Toleration (PE, 144). 32 LOCKE’S LIFE The essay also included “reason of state” arguments for the prudential wisdom of toleration: the economy would be served by leaving dissenting entrepreneurs alone and welcoming refugees of many faiths. He also drafted “some of the Consequences that are Like to Follow upon Lessening of Interest to Four per Cent” (1668), which argued that the determination of rates should be left to the market.
According to Bolton, Locke holds that if thought is superadded to matter, then God modifies the nature of matter, itself; but his doctrine that God cannot possibly be material places no significant constraint on what the modification might be. Bolton describes Locke as saying that powers such as motion, life, sentience and gravitational attraction are superadded to matter, itself, but we are unable to understand how. Some of Locke’s most illuminating remarks about the superaddition of thought to matter come not in the Essay, but in an exchange with Edward Stillingfleet, the Bishop of Worcester.
