To: Matchett-PI; All
"Ahhhhh ... probably because he knew that metaphysics was one of Locke's main interests. Duh:
John Locke -- Main interests:Metaphysics, Epistemology, Political philosophy, philosophy of mind, Education"
But in what way is Darwin challenging the metaphysics of Locke?
BTW, for those who didn't follow the previous thread where this came up, Matchett-PI had insisted that metaphysics was about the supernatural. I correctly told her it was not, and that Darwin was challenging Locke's metaphysics. So she KNOWS I know that Locke dealt with metaphysical issues. She also knows I know that she has never answered in what way Darwin was challenging Locke's metaphysics. She brings up the Darwin quote in about every crevo thread, but cannot explain what it means.
