British Idealism and Political Theory by David Boucher
Book DescriptionBritish Idealism - influenced by the character of German Idealist thought at the end of the eighteenth century, developed by Kant, Fichte and Hegel - began to establish its roots during the middle of the nineteenth century and rapidly became the dominant British philosophy. It began to be challenged at the turn of the century by philosophers including Bertrand Russell and by the end of the First World War it was on the retreat, although its philosophical reverberations are still evident. Testimony to this fact is the considerable renaissance in all aspects of Idealist studies, and particularly in the works of its most recent twentieth-century exponents Michael Oakeshott and R.G. Collingwood. This book offers an introduction to British Idealism through a study of each of the seven key thinkers - T. H. Green, Bernard Bosanquet, F. H. Bradley, Henry Jones, David Ritchie, R. G. Collingwood and Michael Oakeshott. It explores the background religious, political, moral, ideological and economic themes which underpin the work of the thinkers and shows the relevance of their philosophy - with the emphasis on social cohesiveness and the relationship between individual and collective responsibility - to current politics. Written by two of the leading experts in the field, this is a valuable text that will introduce the theory of British Idealism to a broad range of readers.

R. G. Collingwood: an Autobiography and Other Writings, Hardback (December 2013)
This volume presents a many-faceted view of the great Oxford philosopher R. G. Collingwood. At its centre is his Autobiography of 1939, a cult classic for its compelling 'story of his thought'. That work is accompanied here by previously unpublished writings by Collingwood and eleven specially written essays on aspects of his life and work.
British Idealism, Hardback (December 2011)
There has been a significant renewal of interest in the British Idealists. Scholars have acknowledged their critical contribution to the development of a communitarian theory of the relation of the individual to society and a widely accepted theory of rights. This guide offers an account of this key philosophical movement.
Limits of Ethics in International Relations, Paperback (May 2011)
