Tony Burns is professor of political theory in the School of Politics and International Relations, University of Nottingham, and director of its Centre for the Study of Social and Global Justice (CSSGJ).
Part One: The Age of Enlightenment
Chapter One: Seventeenth Century England
Chapter Two: Seventeenth Century Germany
Chapter Three: Eighteenth Century France
Part Two: The French Revolution
Chapter Four: The French Revolution
In this second volume on the politics of recognition in social institutions, Tony Burns provides a masterful assessment of the ideas of thinkers in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. This is an outstanding contribution to the history of political thought, drawing our gaze away from a narrow focus on the state to those institutions in civil society, which are often so decisive in policy-making. I highly recommend this book!
