I​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ have extracted and presented a formal version of the argument below. Reconstruct the rationales for each premise based on the text, defining the major technical terms (which I’ve identified for you) as you go. Note that in order to reconstruct in the rationales, you may have to “fill in” parts of argument that aren’t explicitly mentioned in the text. Next reconstruct offer one potential criticism of the argument. To​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ do this, you will have to say which line of the argument you think is false and say why the rationale behind that line might be flawed. This exercise is just to help you practice reconstructing and criticizing an argument. The criticisms don’t have to reflect your own view (you can play “devil’s advocate if need be.) Finally (and this part is totally optional) you may offer a response on behalf of Locke to the critic​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ism you raised.
