About this product
- DescriptionIn this study, Neal Wood challenges the conception of political theory as a lofty discipline remote from the world of real politics. Drawing on the examples of thinkers from Plato to those of the 19th century, he attempts to define political theory by examining the nature of the state and politics, by identifying the major characteristics that their theories share, and by analyzing the conditions that have favoured their creation. Wood critically explores the two principle approaches to studying the work of past theorists - the philosophical and the historical - and evaluates the relevance of Marxism. The various theories are t treated as blueprints but collectively as a voice of reason from the past, which can inspire and guide present and future theorizing.
- Author BiographyNEAL WOOD, Professor Emeritus and Senior Scholar since 1988. His publications include Cicero's Social and Political Thought, The Foundations of Political Economy, John Locke and Agrarian Capitalism and The Politics of Locke's Philosophy.
