Born May 30th, 1956 to Emily Annabeth Locke and a man who went by the name Anthony Cooper. This article contains character information for the American Drama / Adventure television series Lost. At the time of his birth, Emily was sixteen, and had been dating Cooper for several months, despite that fact that he was roughly twice her age. One night, when Emily was preparing to go on a date with Cooper, her mother attempted to stop her, which resulted in Emily running out of her house and being hit by a truck. The accident caused Locke to be born roughly three months premature. Miraculously, he survived his premature birth, but his mother was unable to cope with the fact that she had a child. Locke's birth is witnessed by the seemingly ageless Other, Richard Alpert. This article contains character information for the American Drama / Adventure television series Lost. Due to Emily's inability to deal with him, her mother had Locke placed in government care, where he found himself in a multitude of foster homes. In one of these homes, Locke experienced the death of his foster sister Jeannie, an event which left her mother distraught. Her grief would be overcome when a stray Golden Retriever comes to live with the family, even sleeping in Jeannie's room.
Locke's childhood is exposed as having been a lonely one in foster care, but he is a gifted child and it seems that members of the "Others" have been following him since he was very young. This is made evident when Alpert visits Locke at one of his foster homes, claiming that he runs a school for children who are "extremely special", and saying that he has reason to believe that Locke may be one of them. While speaking to Locke, Richard becomes fascinated by a picture Locke drew, seemingly of the Smoke monster. Later, Richard asks Locke to look at a number of objects, asking him "which of these belong to you, already?" The objects include a baseball glove, a worn Book of Laws, a comic book entitled MYSTERIOUS TALES about a "hidden land", a compass, a rusted knife, and a vial of an unknown granular substance (possibly sand from The Island). Locke chooses the vial, the compass, and the knife. Alpert then asks him if he is sure the knife is his, and Locke nods. Alpert then becomes upset, claiming that it isn't, and he leaves abruptly, but not before telling Locke's current foster mother that Locke isn't ready for his school yet. Later, in his high school years, Locke is harassed by bullies, who at one point lock him in a locker. His counselor rescues him, then attempts to cheer him up by excitedly reporting that a "Dr. Alpert" called from a company based in Portland, called Mittelos Laboratories, which is apparently doing exciting experiments in chemistry and new technologies. He says that Alpert is very interested in finding "young, bright minds to enter into these new fields of science", and that they want Locke to attend their summer camp. Locke is outraged, claiming that this sort of thing is the reason that he is bullied. He says that he is not a scientist, but prefers boxing, fishing, cars, and sports. The counselor then tells him that science is who he is, and that he can't be "the prom king, quarterback, or a superhero". John retorts "Don't tell me what I can't do. "
As an adult, while working at a toy store, Locke is visited by a woman claiming to be his biological mother. Now curious about his origins, Locke hires a private investigator who tracks down the location of Locke's biological father. Cooper warmly welcomes Locke into his life, and the two bond over hunting trips and activities. Cooper eventually makes it known that he is in need of a kidney transplant. Locke agrees to donate a kidney to him, but following the surgery, discovers that Cooper has abandoned him and refuses to see him.
Distraught over being conned by his own father, Locke attends an anger-management group where he meets Helen. Helen begins helping Locke overcome the issues with his father. The two begin dating and move in together. While Locke plans to propose to her, he is informed of his father's apparent death. At the funeral, Locke is approached by two men who question him about Cooper's location, believing that he faked his death.

Under orders by the commune, Locke leads the officer into the nearby forest to kill him, but is ultimately unable to when Eddie tells him he's not a killer. Locke allows him to escape. Sinking further into a state of depression, Locke retreats into a life of solitude, until he is visited one day by a man asking for information about Adam Seward, who intends to marry the man's wealthy mother. Locke, initially unfamiliar with the name, realizes it is Cooper, and after dismissing the man meets with Cooper and orders him to not marry the mother. Cooper surprises Locke by revealing that he has decided against the marriage after the mysterious death of her son, a death Cooper denies involvement in. Locke, unsure of Cooper's sincerity, prepares to call the mother but is shoved out of a window by Cooper, sending him tumbling 80 feet to the sidewalk below. Locke survives the fall with a broken back, an injury that puts him in a wheelchair. Matthew Abaddon come to visit Locke and tells Locke that he needs to go on an Australian Walkabout, since he will go through a period of self discovery. While Locke is doubtful, Abaddon insists, claiming that the next time they would meet that "He would owe him one".
In Tustin, California, Locke was a Regional Collections Supervisor at an industrial box company and is constantly harassed by his boss Randy. Locke has decided to take Abaddon's advice and go on the Walkabout tour, a choice that Randy mocks. Locke responds by retorting "Don't tell me what I can't do!"

In Philosophy, empiricism is a theory of Knowledge which asserts that knowledge arises from Experience. Tabula rasa ( Latin: blank slate) refers to the epistemological thesis that individual human beings are born with no built-in mental content " Tabula Rasa " ( Latin: blank slate is the third episode of the first season of Lost. Also, the fictional Locke's father is named Anthony Cooper, named for Lord Anthony Ashley-Cooper, the real-world John Locke's political mentor and patron.

The real Locke believed that, in the state of nature, all men had equal rights to punish transgressors; to ensure fair judgment for all, governments were formed to better administer the laws. This philosophy is paralleled by the character of Locke, who embraces both nature and the need for organization among the survivors. Further, the flashback in which Locke donates his kidney to his father mirrors the historical relationship between the philosopher John Locke and Lord Anthony Ashley Cooper, whose life was saved by Locke when the latter persuaded Ashley-Cooper to undergo an operation to remove a cyst on his liver.
In "There's No Place Like Home", Locke's alias away from the island is revealed to be Jeremy Bentham, a reference to another philosopher of the rights of man. " There's No Place Like Home " is the Season finale of the American Broadcasting Company 's fourth season of the serial drama Jeremy Bentham ( IPA: or) (15 February 1748&ndash6 June 1832 was an English Jurist, Philosopher, and legal and Social reformer The real Jeremy Bentham is best known for his advocacy of utilitarianism, for the concept of animal rights, and his opposition to the idea of natural rights. Jeremy Bentham ( IPA: or) (15 February 1748&ndash6 June 1832 was an English Jurist, Philosopher, and legal and Social reformer Utilitarianism is the idea that the moral worth of an action is solely determined by its contribution to overall Utility, that is its contribution to happiness Bentham found pain and pleasure to be the only intrinsic values in the world: "nature has placed mankind under the governance of two sovereign masters, pain and pleasure. " From this he derived the rule of utility, that the good is whatever brings the greatest happiness.
Locke's life has a repeated pattern of believing in a higher being or purpose (for example, his father, pressing the button in the hatch). He begins to suspect that he was destined to be on the island, which coincided with the partial loss of his recovered ability to walk.
Midway into Season 2, however, his faith begins to falter as he slowly grows disillusioned with repeatedly pressing the button. The season finale of Season 2 concludes with Locke ultimately deciding not to press the button, despite the protests of Mr. Eko, who tries unsuccessfully to convince John to keep believing (and keep pushing). Mr Eko is a Fictional character played by After the cataclysmic events that occurred when they stopped pushing the button, Locke admitted that he was wrong to stop believing.
At the beginning of Season 3, Locke's faith seems to be fully restored. This is supported by the fact that Locke's first action after regaining consciousness is to "talk to the island," a strongly spiritual action that harkens back to the Locke of Season 1, who considered the island to be a nexus of spiritual energy, and an entity that could be communicated with.
