These attitudes can still be found today in more extreme faith groups, in particular towards the fantasy genre. (Hall, 2003, p.137) A turning point in popular attitudes in Britain came with the theories of philosopher John Locke published in this book Some Thoughts Concerning Education in 1693. He believed children were born with minds like ?blank slates?, or tabula rasa in Latin, with individual thoughts and ideas.
