The Sense Of Reality : Studies in Ideas and their History, Paperback / softback Book

The Sense Of Reality : Studies in Ideas and their History Paperback / softback

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.
