9781845400934: Lectures in the History of Political Thought (Michael Oakeshott Selected Writings)

Oakeshott's memorable lectures on the history of political thought, delivered each year at the London School of Economics, will now be available in print for the first time as Volume II of his Selected Writings. Based on manuscripts in the LSE archive for 1966–67, the last year of Oakeshott’s tenure as Professor of Political Science, these thirty lectures deal with Greek, Roman, mediaeval, and modern European political thought in a uniquely accessible manner. Scholars familiar with Oakeshott’s work will recognize his own ideas subtly blended with an exposition carefully crafted for an undergraduate audience; those discovering Oakeshott for the first time will find an account of the subject that remains illuminating and provocative.

About the Author:

TERRY NARDIN is Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He is the author of Law, Morality, and the Relations of States (1983) and The Philosophy of Michael Oakeshott (2001), and editor of Traditions of International Ethics (1992), The Ethics of War and Peace (1996), and International Society (1998).

Review:

"The lectures were a tour de force."

(Peter Coleman Quadrant)

"Oakeshott's lectures are a major contribution both to political education in general and the history of political thought in particular. It is this text which Terry Nardin and Luke O'Sullivan have edited with such skill."

(Kenneth Minogue Times Literary Supplement)

"A tour de force in literary terms no less than intellectual."

(Times Literary Supplement)

"[The] editors have skilfully produced a publication that shows little evidence of the lecture form."

(David Boucher Political Studies Review)
