1 - 2 weeks availability
Idealism and Rights discusses the theory of rights of the British idealist political philosopher, Bernard Bosanquet. Bosanquet's political philosophy, like that of the British idealists in general, has long been subject to misunderstanding and prejudice. Yet its practical influence, in Great Britain and its empire from the late nineteenth until the mid-twentieth centuries, was profound.
William Sweet is Professor of Philosophy at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.
