The Sense of Reality : Studies in Ideas and Their History, Paperback

The Sense of Reality : Studies in Ideas and Their History Paperback

Edited by Henry Hardy


Eight of the nine pieces in The Sense of Reality are published here for the first time.

The range is characteristically wide: realism in history; judgement in politics; the special right of philosophers to self-expression; the history of socialism; the nature and impact of Marxism; the radical cultural revolution instigated by romanticism; the Russian notion of artistic commitment; the origins and practice of nationalism.

The title essay, starting from the impossibility of recreating a bygone epoch, provides a superb centrepiece.
