About this product
- DescriptionThis major new book is a wide-ranging analysis of the emergence and development of liberalism, from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. Bellamy examines the evolution of liberal ideas in Britain, France, Germany and Italy. In doing so he discusses the work of Mill, Green, Durkheim, Weber and Pareto among others, and situates their work firmly within their respective historical contexts, illustrating the contingency of many of the social and moral assumptions underlying liberal thought. The book also examines critically the elaboration of liberal ideas in the work of contemporary political philosophers such as Hayek, Nozick and Rawls. Bellamy shows how the liberalisms of these writers rest on social views and moral intuitions that are w anachronistic and untenable.
- Author BiographyRichard Bellamy was previously a research fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford. He has published a number of other books including Modern Italian Social Theory (Polity, 1987) and Liberalism and Recent Legal and Social Philosophy (Franz Steiner, 1989).
