Hegel's retreat from Eleusis : studies in political thought by George Armstrong Kelly( )

17 editions published between 1978 and 2016 in English and held by 1,434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concentrating on Hegel's political philosophy, George Armstrong Kelly pursues three lines of inquiry. The first is the broad question of the connection of philosophy, politics, and history within Hegel's system of thought. Second, the author explores Hegel's relationship with his surrounding political culture and his rejection of aestheticism for the higher goal of politics. Finally, he analyzes Hegel's theory of the state, its historical and structural foundations, its demolition by a later generation, and its relevance. Professor Kelly explains how Hegel's total philosophical method and sys

Idealism, politics and history: sources of Hegelian thought by George Armstrong Kelly( Book )

31 editions published between 1969 and 2010 in English and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Idealism, Politics and History, Mr Kelly provides a wide-ranging but careful scholarly analysis of the meeting of two vital themes in the French Revolutionary period: intellectual and moral perceptions of history, and the patterns of political systems. He argues that a close exploration of the former is critical to our understanding of political philosophy at the end of the Age of Reason. The author traces his central preoccupations in a series of linked studies of Rousseau, Kant, Fichte and Hegel. Each essay is in its own right an important contribution to the history of political ideas. Cumulatively, they furnish a context of thought in which Hegel's system of thought can be clarified and reinterpreted. Mr Kelly thus succeeds not only in conveying an appreciation of the connection between philosophy and politics in Hegel, but in tracing the stages of an entire school of interpretation

"Focusing on the political ideas and social activities of leading French liberals from approximately 1805 into the Second Empire, Professor Kelly presents a distinctive blending of ideological and intellectual history, biograhy, analysis of French regimes and their changes, and his own reflections concerning the wide and still highly pertinent range of issues and themes considered." -- Back of book
Victims, authority, and terror : the parallel deaths of d'Orléans, Custine, Bailly, and Malesherbes by George Armstrong Kelly( Book )

8 editions published between 1982 and 2011 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Victims, Authority, and Terror explores the great political divide between the social gropus that favored change in the France of the 1780s and the Jacobin revolutionaries who perpetrated the Terror of 1793-94. This group biography of four significant victims of the Terror, all of whom accepted revolutionary change to varying degress, isolates precisely what the Jacobins despised - the institutional vessels of aristocracy and their symbolic members. George Kelly develops his argument by using the public biographies of four Terror victims, each of whom is symbolic of a form of aristocracy - princes of the blood, the army, academia, and the parlements. Their lives are compared and contrasted with the institutional attitudes of their caste or corporation, both as we understand them today and as they were perceived by the Jacobins. The wealthy and powerful Louis-Philippe-Joseph, Duc d'Orléans, was the king's cousin, but he assiduously cultivated the revolutionary enterprise. General Adam-Philippe, Comte de Custine, a leading military noble who eventually became commander of republican armies, was too haughty and ambitious for the Jacobins. Jean-Sylvain Bailly, a noted scientist and academician, rushed into politics in 1789 and, while he was mayor of Paris, executed a conservative repression. Lamoignon de Malesherbges, a liberal noble of the robe, was one of the public defenders of Louis XVI before the convention. Each of the victims was more progressive than his caste would lead one to believe, but none could efface the aristocratic stigma from his political image. Each symbolically represented what was obnoxious to the Jacobin notion of society and government. In essence, these four men were executed because of their Old Regime institutional connections. Kelly concludes that Jacobin political philosophy could not tolerate any residues of the aristocratic temper in its Republic of Virtue. This unusual use of biography isolates Jacobin biases and motives so that the events and rhetoric of the Terror can be more clearly understood. The author challenges many of the ways in which French revolutionary history has been interpreted for several generations and contributes to the redefinition of Jacobinism and its use as a political category." -- from dust cover

Addresses to the German nation by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first translation of Fichte's Addresses to the German Nation for almost 100 years. The series of fourteen speeches, delivered whilst Berlin was under French occupation after Prussia's disastrous defeat at the Battle of Jena in 1806, is widely regarded as a founding document of German nationalism, celebrated and reviled in equal measure. Fichte's account of the distinctiveness of the German people and his belief in the native superiority of its culture helped to shape German national identity throughout the nineteenth century and beyond. With an extensive introduction that puts Fichte's argument in its intellectual and historical context, this edition brings an important and seminal work to a modern readership. All of the usual series features are provided, including notes for further reading and a chronology."--Jacket
