Michael Oakeshott Hardback
Part of the Major Conservative and Libertarian Thinkers series
British philosopher Michael Oakeshott is widely considered as one of the key conservative thinkers of the 20th century.
After publishing many works on religion, he became mostly known for his works on political theory.
This valuable volume by Edmund Neill sets out to Oakeshott's thought in an accessible manner, considering its initial reception and long-term influence. "Major Conservative and Libertarian Thinkers" provides comprehensive accounts of the works of seminal conservative thinkers from a variety of periods, disciplines and traditions - the first series of its kind.
Even the selection of thinkers adds another aspect to conservative thinking, including not only theorists but also thinkers in literary forms and those who are also practitioners.
The series comprises twenty volumes, each including an intellectual biography, historical context, critical exposition of the thinker's work, reception and influence, contemporary relevance, bibliography including references to electronic resources and an index.
