On History and Other Essays

Author(s): Michael Oakeshott

Philosophy

In five essays, including three on historiography, one of the greatest minds in English political thought in the twentieth century explores themes central to the human experience: the nature of history, the rule of law, and the quest for power that is intrinsic to the human condition. Michael Oakeshott believed, as Timothy Fuller observes, that "the historian's effort to understand the past without ulterior motive is the] effort which distinguishes the historian from all who examine the past for the guidance they expect it to provide about practical concerns."


Timothy Fuller is Professor of Political Science at Colorado College.
