Character And Style In English Politics

by J. H. Grainger, Character And Style In English Politics Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Character And Style In English Politics book, A study of leading English politicians from the Tudor period to the time of original publication in 1969. In his introductory chapter Mr Grainger discusses the general nature of the politician's work, the importance of imagination, common-sense and verbal felicity and attempts to pin down what the 'greatness' of 'great' politicians involved. In the main part of this book he presents a series of brilliant interpretative essays on individual politicians. Mr Grainger makes the distinction between 'character' and 'style' as touchstones to identify and evaluate the qualities of those dissident politicians who spoke for country against court in the seventeenth century and those who took a stand in the eighteenth century but were assimilated into the political order. This is followed by a discussion of Victorian political heroes, and of notable leaders, Liberal, Labour and Conservative, of the twentieth century.

Oakeshott On History

by Luke O'Sullivan, Oakeshott On History Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Oakeshott On History book, This book challenges the common view that Michael Oakeshott was mainly important as a political philosopher by offering the first comprehensive study of his ideas on history. It argues that Oakeshott's writings on the philosophy of history mark him out as the most successful of the philosophers who attempted to establish historical study as an autonomous form of thought during the twentieth century. It also contends that his work on the history of political thought is best seen in the context of debates over the origins of the liberal state. For the first time, extensive use has been made of unpublished material in the collection of Oakeshott's papers at the LSE, resulting in an intellectual biography that should be of interest both to first-time students and those already familiar with his published works.

Here For Our Children S Children

by Adrian C. Armstrong, Here For Our Children S Children Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Here For Our Children S Children book, This study reviews the many different bases for wanting to preserve the environment. By seeing how protagonists approach the same situation from different assumptions, some of the origins of environmental conflict may be established, and ways of resolving conflict can be identified. There are two major issues in environmental ethics: The first asks whether the problems can be solved within current approaches, or require instead lifestyle changes for the whole of western civilisation. The second issue concerns why the environment should be valued. This review identifies a series in increasingly stronger valuations that can be identified as: 1. Hedonistic - we protect the environment because we like it. 2. Utilitarian - the environment is valuable to us 3. Consequentialist - we want to preserve things for other people - now or future. 4. Intrinsic - The environment has virtue in its own right 5. Extrinsic - we value the environment because it is of consequence to some thing else - theistic (a God). Thirdly, these insights are used to explore potential ways of resolving environmental conflicts, notably by the recovery of democratic decision making at the right scale: local, national or even global.
