9780141009544: Inventing The Individual
Review:

Magisterial, timeless, beautifully written ... Siedentop has achieved something quite extraordinary. He has explained us to ourselves ( Spectator)

One of the most stimulating books of political theory to have appeared in many years ... a refreshingly unorthodox account of the roots of modern liberalism in medieval Christian thinking (John Gray Literary Review)

A brave, brilliant and beautifully written defence of the western tradition (Paul Lay History Today)

Thoroughly interesting and fundamentally convincing ... admirably nuanced ... formidable ... Inventing the Individual is written with effortless lucidity (Jeffrey Collins TLS)

An engrossing book of ideas ... illuminating, beautifully written and rigorously argued (Kenan Malik Independent)

A most impressive work of philosophical history (Robert Skidelsky)

Review:

Thoroughly interesting and fundamentally convincing . . . given the range of the material and the audacity of his argument, the account is admirably nuanced . . . formidable . . . Inventing the Individual is written with effortless lucidity (Jeffrey Collins TLS)

Inventing the Individual . . . seeks answers to the question, "Is it mere coincidence that liberal secularism developed in the Christian West?" Siedentop argues convincingly that it is not and offers an engaging and timely synthesis reaching back to the Classical world to explain why . . . If there is just one book you read this summer, make it this brave, brilliant and beautifully written defence of the western tradition (Paul Lay History Today)

Descripción Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 198 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The new book from Larry Siedentop, acclaimed author of Democracy in Europe, Inventing the Individual is a highly original rethinking of how our moral beliefs were formed and their impact on western society today Magisterial, timeless, beautifully written .Siedentop has achieved something quite extraordinary. He has explained us to ourselves Spectator This ambitious and stimulating book describes how a moral revolution in the first centuries AD - the discovery of human freedom and its universal potential - led to a social revolution in the west. The invention of a new, equal social role, the individual, gradually displaced the claims of family, tribe and caste as the basis of social organisation. Larry Siedentop asks us to rethink the evolution of the ideas on which modern societies and government are built, and argues that the core of what is now our system of beliefs emerged much earlier than we think. The roots of liberalism - belief in individual liberty, in the fundamental moral equality of individuals, that equality should be the basis of a legal system and that only a representative form of government is fitting for such a society - all these, Siedentop argues, were pioneered by Christian thinkers of the Middle Ages, who drew on the moral revolution carried out by the early church. It was the arguments of canon lawyers, theologians and philosophers from the eleventh to the fourteenth century, rather than the Renaissance, that laid the foundation for liberal democracy. There are large parts of the world where other beliefs flourish - fundamentalist Islam, which denies the equality of women and is often ambiguous about individual rights and representative institutions; quasi-capitalist China, where a form of utilitarianism enshrines state interests even at the expense of justice and liberty. Such beliefs may foster populist forms of democracy. But they are not liberal. In the face of these challenges, Siedentop urges that understanding the origins of our own liberal ideas is more than ever an important part of knowing who we are. LARRY SIEDENTOP was appointed to the first post in intellectual history ever established in Britain, at Sussex University in the 1970 s. From there he moved to Oxford, becoming Faculty Lecturer in Political Thought and a Fellow of Keble College. His writings include a study of Tocqueville, an edition of Guizot s History of Civilization in Europe, and Democracy in Europe, which has been translated into a dozen languages. Siedentop was made CBE in 2004.
