An Approach to Political Philosophy: Locke in Context brings together Professor Tully's most important and innovative statements on Locke in a systematic treatment of the latter's thought that is at once contextual and critical. Each essay has been rewritten and expanded for this volume, and each seeks to understand a theme of Locke's political philosophy by interpreting it in light of the complex contexts of early modern European political thought and practice. These historical studies are then used in a variety of ways to gain critical perspectives on the assumptions underlying current debates in political philosophy and the history of political thought. The themes treated include government, toleration, discipline, property, aboriginal rights, individualism, power, labour, self-ownership, community, progress, liberty, participation, and revolution.

"Kirstie McClure offers a major reinterpretation of John Locke's thought that is important not only for the light it sheds on Locke but also for the questions it poses about liberalism and rights-based theories of politics. Sensitive to the range of interpretative and political issues that Locke's work presents. McClure's analysis is impressive for its balance and subtlety, and for her command of the enormous literature on Locke." "Between the Restoration and the Glorious Revolution, between Two Tracts on Government (1660) and Two Treatises on Government (1690). Locke subjected the idea of civil power to increasing scrutiny. In one generation, he moved from supporting order for its own sake to defending resistance, and ended with a profoundly modern epistemology. McClure suggests that Locke's concepts of government by consent, equality, rights, and the rule of law were embedded in his theistic cosmology." "Although Locke may well have been a constitutionalist, his theoretical concerns were far broader than any legal or constitutional interpretation of his work might suggest. To make this claim, McClure explains, is to deny neither the significance of "rights" nor the importance of institutions and consent in Locke's theoretical production. Rather, it is to insist that such themes are merely parts of a more comprehensive theoretical project, the focus of which, bluntly stated in the Second Treatise, was "to understand Political Power right.""--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

How are we to understand past political thinkers? Is it a matter simply of reading their texts again and again? Do we have to relate past texts of political thought to the contexts in which ideas were composed and in which the aims of past thinkers were formulated? Or should past political theories be deconstructed so as to uncover not what their authors maintain, but what the texts reveal? In this book, theories of interpreting past political thinkers are examined and the interpretive methods of a range of theories are reviewed, including those of Hegel, Marx, Oakeshott, Collingwood, the Cambridge School, Foucault, Derrida and Gadamer. The application of these theories of interpretation to notable modern political theorists, Machiavelli, Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Kant, Hegel, Marx, Bentham, Mill, Nietzsche and Beauvoir is then used as a way of understanding modern political thought and of assessing interpretive theories of past political thought. The result is a book which sees the history of modern political thought as more than a procession of political theories but rather as a reflection on the meaning of past political thought and its interpretation. It provides a way of reading the history of modern political thought, in which the question of interpretation matters both for understanding how we interpret the past but also for considering what it means to undertake political thinking.

PEACE IN IRELAND: THE WAR OF IDEAS challenges the received wisdom about why Northern Ireland descended into internecine strife. Focussing on the period from 1968 to the present, it argues that the Troubles were not the result of an upsurge in primitive hatreds, nor a reversion to tribal loyalties. The conflict in Northern Ireland had a peculiarly modern character, the distinctive features of which are observable elsewhere around the globe today. The Northern Ireland crisis centred around rival aspirations to democracy. The very existence of such a crisis highlights the fact that democracy is a fundamental problem for modern politics, not an automatic recipe for harmony and accommodation. Failure to grasp the significance of this problem has vital implications for the prospects of the current Northern Irish peace process. In assessing those prospects, this brilliantly illuminating book provides a wider analysis of the core values which guide political judgement in the modern world, and explores one of the basic dilemmas facing present day politics. The history of Northern Ireland presents a struggle between the two organising principles of modern politics - democracy and imperialism. However, the meaning of these principles has been systematically misunderstood under the influence of political prejudice and passion. Through an exploration of the dynamics of war and peace in Northern Ireland, this book sets out to uncover the true significance of each principle, and to chart the dangers which accompany their misapplication in political conflicts which threaten the world at present.

It is time to reassess the impact of John Locke (1632–1704) on eighteenth-century Anglophone political thought. This reset edition provides the primary materials for new interpretations. It shows the salience of Locke's presence in the age of the American and French Revolutions, reprinting some of the leading documents in which Locke's authority was claimed both for and against the American rebels. Josiah Tucker's massive attack on Locke in 1781 is included here, together with a series of ensuing assaults upon, and defences of, `Mr Locke's democratical system'.In these volumes can be traced the manner in which Locke became both the 'idol' of the Whig Settlement of 1689 and the key to unravel that settlement in the name of radical populism: a Locke made safe for Whig gentlemen, as well as a Locke who, in Mary Astell's words of 1706, prompted the question, 'If all men are born free, how is that all women are born slaves?', and a Locke who, in the hands of the socialist Thomas Hodgskin in 1832, stood up for the rights of the oppressed labouring man. In these six volumes Locke is debated across a gamut of genres: in formal treatises, polemical pamphlets, newspaper essays, political sermons, and cheap tracts aimed at politicizing the masses.
