The Cambridge Companion to Oakeshott, Paperback / softback Book

The Cambridge Companion to Oakeshott Paperback / softback

Edited by Efraim (Hebrew University of Jerusalem) Podoksik

Part of the Cambridge Companions to Philosophy series


Michael Oakeshott (1901-1990) was one of the leading British philosophers of the twentieth century.

He has been influential particularly as a political philosopher, but his work reflects a range of philosophical interests that have more gradually come to be appreciated.

In this volume a broad group of scholars offers a comprehensive overview of Oakeshott's philosophy, including his moral and political philosophy, his philosophy of history, science and aesthetics, and his views on the role of education.

They analyse Oakeshott's ideas in different intellectual contexts and assess his overall contribution to twentieth-century thought.

Accessible and rich with new scholarly material, this volume will be an excellent guide for students and scholars alike.
