This paper analyzes some aspects of John Locke's pedagogical vi-sion, with particular regard to his main educational work Some Thoughts concerning Education, developing a comparison with his Essay concerning human understanding. Our analysis will focus on Locke's investigations concerning the human perfection, the re-lationship between nature and cultural habit, the connection be-tween tempers and characters, within a pedagogical discourse ad-dressed to the education of a modern citizen.
