John Hildrop Bibliography

Free Thoughts upon the Brute-Creation: or, an Examination of Father Bougeant’s Philosophical Amusement, &c. In Two Letters to a Lady 1742
Hildrop (d.1756) was the author of various fugitive essays of a satirico-polemical kind, chiefly directed against the deists. This work has been described as “an attempt to prove that the lower animals have souls in a state of degradation consequent upon the fall of man.” It includes criticism of Locke’s treatment of the subject in his Essay.
