Locke's Innate ideas By: maranda mccomish

Innate ideas are ideas that we are all supposedly born with, showing that the mind is not born as a so called "Blank slate"

John Locke believed that humans were born as mold-able balls of clay ready to be shaped through their experiences and surroundings.

This idea was a counterargument to the idea of innate ideas made by Plato and Descartes who believed that ideas were placed in one's mind at birth
