Title: Peter Anstey, Sydney
Locke on non-propositional knowledge

This paper argues that John Locke held a four-step theory of the  
acquisition of knowledge. The first step involves the perception of the  
agreement or disagreement of ideas. It is argued that this step is  
pre-propositional and is a form of knowledge by acquaintance. The second  
step involves the formation of mental propositions. The third step involves  
the asserting or judging of mental propositions and the fourth step is the  
construction of verbal propositions. It is maintained, contrary to the  
views of Ruth Mattern, David Owen and others who hold that for Locke all  
knowledge is propositional, that this is the interpretation of best fit.
