Question 31 pts

Which of the following are true of the definition, "man is a rational animal," according to Locke?

(a) If it is a correct definition for the person stating it, then "rational" and "animal" already belong that person's idea of "man," and so the proposition expresses no real knowledge: it is "trifling."

(b) It is not a good definition of the word as ordinarily used, since if a donkey were to talk and reason, we would call it a rational donkey, not a donkey-shaped man.

(c) If correct, it expresses an arbitrary determination of the will, to connect "rational" and "animal" into a single complex idea and give it the word "man" as a sign. There may be not be anything distinctive about the real essence of all and only the things to which it applies.

(d) All of the above.

(e) (a) and (c).
