British Idealism and the Concept of the Self, Hardback Book

British Idealism and the Concept of the Self Hardback

Edited by W. J. Mander, Stamatoula Panagakou


This book reassesses the origins, development and legacy of the philosophy of the British idealists, demonstrating the enduring relevance of their thought for the modern discipline.

This body of work coheres around the single unifying theme of the self - a concept of central importance to the idealist school.

Particular attention is also paid to the many connections that hold between various philosophers and branches of philosophy, as well as creating a set of continuously running dialogues between contributing authors. Readers will discover a comprehensive, stimulating and sharply focused panorama of British idealist thought, which will be useful to philosophers, historians of ideas, political and social theorists, psychologists, and policy-makers who wish to gain a deeper understanding of the citizen as a self.
