About this title

Synopsis:

Edmund Burke prided himself on being a practical statesman, not an armchair philosopher. Yet his responses to specific problems - rebellion in America, the abuse of power in India and Ireland, or revolution in France - incorporated theoretical debates within jurisprudence, economics, religion, moral philosophy, and political science. Moreover, the extraordinary rhetorical force of Burke's speeches and writings quickly secured his reputation as a gifted orator and literary stylist. This Companion provides a comprehensive assessment of Burke's thought, examining the intellectual traditions that shaped it and the concrete issues to which it was addressed. The volume explores all his major writings from his early treatise on aesthetics to his famous polemic, Reflections on the Revolution in France. It also examines the vexed question of Burke's Irishness and seeks to determine how his cultural origins may have influenced his political views - from his attitudes on religious toleration to his complicated response to Empire. Finally, it aims both to explain and to challenge interpretations of Burke as a romantic, a utilitarian, a natural law thinker, and founding father of modern conservatism.

Book Description:

The eighteenth-century statesman Edmund Burke is a key thinker in the history of modern political thought. His writings, speeches, and actions reflect complex views on jurisprudence, politics, empire, aesthetics, rhetoric, religion, and moral philosophy. Of interest to students and scholars of politics, philosophy, history, and literature, this comprehensive and accessible Companion examines each facet of Burke's thought and concludes with an evaluation of his legacy and reputation.
