The Nature Of Political Theory (Free PDF)


File Size: 2.66 Mb

Description
The original idea for this book started life some ten years ago. At the outset, it was envisaged as a short text, but subsequently it appeared virtually to take on a life of its own. The initial serious research began during a two year fellowship in the Research School of the Social Sciences at the Australian National University, between 1994 and 1996. My thanks go to the Research School, and particularly to Barry Hindess, who then headed the politics section. I am sure Barry’s perspective will differ markedly from my own; nonetheless, his independent critical thinking and open, friendly support were great stimuli to my initial reflections on this whole issue. Whilst in the Research School I ran a seminar series over a year, on the theme ‘Whither Political Theory?’Many of the paperswere later published in an edited volume entitled Political Theory: Tradition and Diversity (1997): however, the seminars themselves were an additional impetus to thinking more deeply about the whole issue of theory. In many ways the series was, in part, a preface to the present study. My thanks go to all the participants in that seminar programme.
