John Locke (29 August 1632 –1704) was an influential English philosopher of the Enlightenment and social contract theorist. He was an empiricist who believed that all knowledge is based on experience derived from the senses.
“’I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts.’

(“Ho sempre pensato che le azioni degli uomini siano le migliori interpreti dei loro pensieri.”)
