Even though John Locke rejected the theory of innate idea, he somehow falls into a kind of contradiction. ... Through our senses ideas are conveyed into the mind. Then the task of the mind is to receive and distinct one idea from another. In other ways we can say that, according to Locke, ideas come from experience.
