that argument? What does he conclude that such a right consists in? What is the end, origin and
extent of that right for man originally, and for man as he is presently situated? Is it natural to all
men? Is it limited in scope? Has the right changed over time? What occasioned that change, if it
did in fact alter? Does man have a right to unlimited acquisition of private property according to
2. For Locke, all power that one man has over another man is a limited power. Why is such power
always limited? He further argues in the case of such particular modes of such a power that the

Present how he argues that political power, his principal concern, is limited. Present how and
