Críticas:

It is David Bromwich s aim in The Intellectual Life of Edmund Burke" that people should know a good deal more about what Burke actually said and wrote Bromwich s patient and subtle exposition is a continuing delight. After reading this first volume, several major misreadings of Burke and a more general ignorance of his arguments and actions will not be possible, or at any rate won t be legitimate The Intellectual Life of Edmund Burke" is both indispensable and unputdownable, and with its companion volume will surely form a lasting landmark.--Ferdinand Mount"London Review of Books" (08/21/2014)"

Críticas:

In The Intellectual Life of Edmund Burke: From the Sublime and Beautiful to American Independence," a searching and profoundly meditated account of the earlier part of Burke s career, David Bromwich is not much interested in finding a [political] label: he does something much more valuable, which is to evoke with tremendous accomplishment the complexities of Burke that are always bound to resist any such attempt The concluding volume of his outstanding intellectual Life of his subject will be eagerly awaited by many.--Seamus Perry"Times Literary Supplement" (10/24/2014)"

Descripción HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS, United States, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 236 x 163 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. David Bromwich s portrait of statesman Edmund Burke (1730-1797) is the first biography to attend to the complexity of Burke s thought as it emerges in both the major writings and private correspondence. The public and private writings cannot be easily dissociated, nor should they be. For Burke--a thinker, writer, and politician--the principles of politics were merely those of morality enlarged. Bromwich reads Burke s career as an imperfect attempt to organize an honorable life in the dense medium he knew politics to be. This intellectual biography examines the first three decades of Burke s professional life. His protest against the cruelties of English society and his criticism of all unchecked power laid the groundwork for his later attacks on abuses of government in India, Ireland, and France. Bromwich allows us to see the youthful skeptic, wary of a social contract based on nature ; the theorist of love and fear in relation to the sublime and beautiful ; the advocate of civil liberty, even in the face of civil disorder; the architect of economic reform; and the agitator for peace with America. However multiple and various Burke s campaigns, a single-mindedness of commitment always drove him. Burke is commonly seen as the father of modern conservatism. Bromwich reveals the matter to be far more subtle and interesting. Burke was a defender of the rights of disfranchised minorities and an opponent of militarism. His politics diverge from those of any modern party, but all parties would be wiser for acquaintance with his writing and thoughts. Nº de ref. de la librería AAZ9780674729704
