Editorial Reviews

Review


"Oakeshott presents three essays: on the theoretical understanding of human conduct, on the civil condition as the ideal mode of human association, and on the modern European state....His book is like a long elegant conversation--sometimes rather abstract, always with a keen eye for concrete exemplification, learned, analytical, and full of trenchant insights."--Library Journal


"This majestic work by the greatest living British philosopher of conservative disposition is preeminently a grand adventure....Oakeshott has here added to our common stock one more such distinction--the one between rule-governed associations and purpose-governed associations. In so doing, he has given us a fresh and memorable definition of political liberty. And that, besides so much else, is cause for gratitude and celebration."--National Review
