About this book

This book reassesses the origins, development and legacy of the philosophy of the British idealists, demonstrating the enduring relevance of their thought for the modern discipline. This body of work coheres around the single unifying theme of the self – a concept of central importance to the idealist school. Particular attention is also paid to the many connections that hold between various philosophers and branches of philosophy, as well as creating a set of continuously running dialogues between contributing authors. Readers will discover a comprehensive, stimulating and sharply focused panorama of British idealist thought, which will be useful to philosophers, historians of ideas, political and social theorists, psychologists, and policy-makers who wish to gain a deeper understanding of the citizen as a self.

Most recently, he has edited The Oxford Handbook of British Philosophy in the Nineteenth-Century (2014).

Stamatoula Panagakou teaches in the Department of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Cyprus.

Reviews

“Its overall aim is not just to promote historical knowledge of British Idealism but also to promote idealism as a viable philosophical position. … they are rich in ideas and enjoyable to read. They will not fail to be inspirational to all those unsatisfied with contemporary ways of talking about the self.” (Pierfrancesco Basile, Journal of the History of Philosophy, Vol. 57 (3), July, 2019)

“This is an invigorating and valuable collection of papers, and the editors are to be complemented for their hard work in bringing it together from the initial conference. It will be a useful addition to a small but growing body of literature from a stalwart group of scholars, working in diverse ways on British Idealist philosophy.” (Andrew Vincent, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews, ndpr.nd.edu, February, 2018)


“This book is recommended to those interested in a critical discussion of the philosophies of British Idealists as well as to a historical view and contextualizing of their philosophical thought. It is warmly recommended to those interested in the connection and divergences between the philosophical thought of the same idealist philosopher in various disciplines as well as to those interested in the connection and divergences between the different philosophers.” (Flavia Felletti, metapsychology online reviews, metapsychology.mentalhelp.net, Vol. 21 (32), August, 2017


“British Idealism and the Concept of the Self is a good textbook for any class in English language studies that includes philosophy. The basic principles of participation in government by those governed are well set out. In these essays, authors from Greece, Finland, Poland, Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom offer a variety of philosophical experience in the demanding disciplines of idealistic thinking.” (Alastair Beattie, Journal of Consciousness Studies, Vol. 24 (3-4), 2017)
