There seems to be no settled view on the nature and role of consciousness in Locke's philosophical psychology. In this chapter, I survey a number of interpretive strategies and outline the problems, solutions, advantages, and disadvantages of rival interpretations. I consider one very interesting issue in some detail that might make a difference to the viability of competing theories: whether or not Locke allows that we have non-ideational mental content.
