John Yolton was professor of philosophy and dean of Rutgers College at Rutgers University. Perceptual Acquaintance and a companion volume, Thinking Matter, grew out of years of research in seventeenth and eighteenth-century thought. His earlier titles include John Locke and the War of Ideas and Locke and the Compass of Human Understanding; he edited The Locke Reader and the Everyman edition of Locke’s Essay Concerning Human Understanding. Yolton also served on the editorial board of the journal Eighteenth-Century Studies.
