“Brutal” British Empiricists
“Sorrow-causin'” Social Contract Theorists
Sock-em Jock-em Locke

Notes: The face in Locke’s nineteenth-century schoolboy slate is Leibniz. Children can allegorically act out the innateness debate which was so thrillingly portrayed in Leibniz’ New Essay Concerning Human Understanding by having two dolls fight. Leibniz’ contribution to the debate is, of course, all very posthumous as far as Locke is concerned, but that doesn’t stop one from pretending the dolls are fighting. And a barrel-chested action figure with an enormous wig is objectively funny.
