9780521022637: Pluralism and the Personality of the State (Ideas in Context)

Pluralism and the Personality of the State tells the history of English political thought from 1900 to 1933, concentrating on the work of the political pluralists and their attack on the idea of state sovereignty. It explores the background to their work in the ideas of the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes and the German jurist Otto von Gierke. It also looks at what wider relevance their ideas might have today, particularly with regard to the question of the relation between the state and voluntary associations.

Review:

"As a history of the implantation of ideas within a particular context, this work is exceptional. As an incisive conceptual negotiation of this tradition....this work borders on brilliance." B.J. Macdonald, Choice

"...such thoroughness is part and parcel of the book's great value to historians of ideas in early twentieth century England." Review of Metaphysics

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Set against the broad context of philosophical arguments about group and state personality, Pluralism and the Personality of the State tells, for the first time, the history of political pluralism. The pluralists believed that the state was simply one group among many, and could not therefore be sovereign. They also believed that groups, like individuals, might have personalities of their own. The book examines the philosophical background to political pluralist ideas with particular reference to the work of Thomas Hobbes and the German Otto von Gierke. It also traces the development of pluralist thought before, during and after the First World War. Part Three returns to Hobbes in order to see what conclusions can be drawn about the nature of his Leviathan and the nature of the state as it exists today. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780521022637
