Summary:"In this book Paul Franco provides an authoritative introduction to
the life and thought of Michael Oakeshott, one of the most important
philosophical voices of the twentieth century. After sketching a
brief biography of Oakeshott, Franco examines his most distinctive
ideas, including his early idealist theory of knowledge, his
influential critique of rationalism and central social planning, and
his liberal theory of civil association. The author argues that
Oakeshott makes important contributions both to conservatism and to
liberal theory, and he compares Oakeshott with such other
contemporary thinkers as Hayek, Strauss, Berlin, Rawls, and Rorty."
"This book is an essential introduction to the whole range of
Oakeshott's thought, and it sets the philosopher's work in historical
context while also demonstrating its relevance to
twenty-first-century debates in political philosophy."--BOOK JACKET.
Notes:Includes bibliographical references (p. -203) and index.
