'This is an essential collection of essays, written by one of the world's greatest exponents of the history of political thought. … it should serve to challenge the all too often naive approach to the history of ideas employed in IR, while pointing to the richness of human lived experience and the political traditions that are our heritage and that have shaped and structured the very world in which we live.' International Affairs
'As a retrospective showcase of the work of a major scholar, this is impressive. Skinner's ability to combine political and philosophical insight with minute knowledge of several centuries of political literature is awe inspiring.' The Times Higher Education Supplement
' … this is a deeply impressive collection which displays Skinner's exceptional range.' The New York Review
A collection of essays by Quentin Skinner, one of the world's leading intellectual historians. Divided into three volumes, they include some of his most important philosophical and methodological statements written over the past four decades, each carefully revised for publication in this form. In a series of seminal essays Professor Skinner sets forth the intellectual principles that inform his work. In the first volume he considers the theoretical difficulties inherent in the pursuit of knowledge and interpretation, and elucidates the methodology which he will use in the two successive volumes, which deal respectively with the political thought of the Italian Renaissance and with the political thought of Thomas Hobbes. Professor Skinner's work is characterised by philosophical power, limpid clarity, and elegance of exposition; these essays provide a fascinating digest of the development of his thought. Professer Skinner has been awarded the Balzan Prize Life Time Achievement Award for Political Thought, History and Theory.
