¶ Locke’s first published responses to criticism of his Essay Concerning Human Understanding; these two were written in reply first to Edward Stillingfleet’s Discourse in Vindication of the Doctrine of the Trinity (London, 1696), which accused Locke of unorthodox religious beliefs, and the second was to Stillingfleet's response to Locke's first letter. There was one further exchange between the two in 1699.
