Like Descartes, Locke believed that empirical knowledge obtained by us through the senses, can only be relative. But, in contrast to Descartes, Locke did not allow this thesis to undermine the knowledge obtained in this way. Rather than engage in the study of the mind, Locke used the common sense. Empirical knowledge, and the knowledge that we get from this knowledge can only be relative, but with the ability to use intuition and deduction, we can assess whether it is relative. (This separation of reason and common sense, which was first discovered in Descartes and Locke, has become a permanent feature that characterizes the relationship between the English and frantsuzskoyfilosofskimi schools. Currently, this division went so far that the French believe that the British philosophy has philosophy nothing and English common sense, as opposed to the French philosophy, came to a similar conclusion.) in the second book of his "Essay Concerning human Understanding" Locke explains that there are two different types of ideas that constitute our empirical knowledge of the world. Simple ideas such as light, heat, cold, and color are inseparable. Complex ideas, on the other hand, consist of combinations of simple ideas. Such combinations may lead to the emergence of concepts that do not exist in the real world - such as ghosts and UFOs.
