My article offers an overview of the role of the theory of education in John Locke’s system of ideas. First and second sections outline main interpretations of Locke’s educational work, from a religious point of view. Important interpretations of John Locke’s work within the framework of history of education are discussed in the third section. In the section that follows, I present my hypothesis on the influence of John Locke’s philosophical anthropology, as described in his educational writing, on his political philosophy. Coherency of Locke’s ideas will be demonstrated at the end of this section on examples from his writings on epistemology, political philosophy, and theology. Locke’s work on education is interpreted as a link between these three fields. In the last section, I present several examples of Locke’s Central-European reception.
