Philosophical Theory of the State and Related Essays, The

Bosanquet, Bernard

This new edition reintroduces on the central texts of late nineteenth-century political thought. In addition to the fourth and final edition of the Philosophical Theory of the State, the editors have added a comprehensive selection of Bosanquet’s most important essays on political theory and social policy. Also added is a detailed new introduction, a guide to further reading, and an index. Together they make clear the social and political background and implications of Bosanquet’s political philosophy and allow a more complete understanding of British idealism.
