Board of Directors


The Locke Institute was founded in 1989 as an independent, non-partisan educational and research organization. Named for the philosopher and political theorist John Locke (1632-1704), the Institute ascribes to his theory that society is based on the law of nature and that the individual is the ultimate source of political sovereignty.

The Institute endorses Locke's proposition that individuals are possessed of inalienable rights to life, liberty, and property. It is the principal function of the state to uphold these rights since free individuals otherwise would not enter into political society.
