In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

“A Companion to Michael Oakeshott has fresh and important things to say both about Oakeshott and about liberal political culture generally and expresses them very well.” —Aryeh Botwinick, Temple University “This timely collection brings together an important set of essays exploring various aspects of the philosophy of Michael Oakeshott. For those unacquainted with Oakeshott’s brilliant but sometimes enigmatic writings on civil association, history, the nature of human experience, education, and political authority, this volume stands as a tribute to his growing intellectual stature in the twenty-first century. It shows just how far Oakeshott studies in the Anglophone world have come in the past two decades, and it lays out a path for where they might productively go in the future.” —Richard Boyd, Georgetown University Michael Oakeshott has long been recognized as one of the most important political philosophers of the twentieth century, but until now no single volume has been able to examine all the facets of his wide-ranging philosophy with sufficient depth, expertise , and authority. The essays collected here cover all aspects of Oakeshott’s thought, from his theory of knowledge and philosophies of history, religion, art, and education to his reflections on morality, politics, and law. Aside from the editors, the contributors are Corey Abel, David Boucher, Elizabeth Corey , Robert Devigne, Timothy Fuller, Steven Gerencser, Robert Grant, Noel Malcolm, Kenneth McIntyre, Kenneth Minogue, Noël O’Sullivan, Geoffrey Thomas, and Martyn Thompson.
