Thomas Reid's theory of ideas

Friend and philosophy professor David Potts (City College of San Francisco) published Thomas Reid and the Theory of Ideas. Potts credits Reid's attributing intentionality to our ideas and criticisms of the Empiricist or representational views of John Locke, David Human, and George Berkeley.

I would need to read Thomas Reid's and John Locke's works again more closely to opine more, but I believe I would portray Locke's theory somewhat more favorably than David Potts and Thomas Reid did.
