Most widely held works by Terry Nardin
Lectures in the history of political thought by Michael Oakeshott( )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 1,503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new collection of thirty unpublished pieces covers every decade of Michael Oakeshott's career and adds to his contributions to the philosophy of historical understanding, political philosophy and the philosophy of education and aesthetics. The essays are in an informal style that will be accessible to new readers as well as those already acquainted with Oakeshott's works."--Jacket
The philosophy of Michael Oakeshott by Terry Nardin( )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 1,172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first comprehensive study of Michael Oakeshott as a philosopher rather than a political theorist, which is how most commentators have regarded him. Indeed, the careful reading of his published and unpublished writings that Terry Nardin provides here shows that Oakeshott's concerns have been primarily philosophical, not political. These writings go far beyond politics to offer a critical philosophy of human activity and of the disciplines that interpret and explain it. Oakeshott argues that inquiry can be independent of practical concerns, even when its subject is the thought and action of human beings."--Jacket

Traditions of international ethics by Terry Nardin( Book )

39 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first comprehensive study of how different ethical traditions deal with the central moral problems of international affairs. Using the organising concept of a tradition, it shows that ethics offers many different languages for moral debate rather than a set of unified doctrines. Each chapter describes the central concepts, premises, vocabulary and history of a particular tradition and explains how that tradition has dealt with a set of recurring ethical issues in international relations. Such issues include national self-determination, the use of force in armed intervention or nuclear deterrence, and global distributive justice. Written by leading specialists in the US and UK, this book treats the subject of international ethics in an encyclopaedic way. It allows readers to identify internal tensions within, as well as points of agreement and disagreement between, a wide variety of traditions
International society : diverse ethical perspectives( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a time of eroding sovereignty and resurgent nationalism, this collection provides a searching investigation of the moral foundations of the international order. Drawing upon diverse philosophical and theological perspectives, the contributors debate the character of international society, the authority of international law and institutions, and the demands of international justice. In a series of philosophical essays, each followed by a critical commentary, the book considers the contributions of legal positivism, natural law, Kantian ethics, contractarian theory, and moral cosmopolitanism to the discussion of law and justice in international society. It also includes commentaries by experts in Jewish, Christian, and Islamic moral theology, and a concluding chapter that compares and contrasts the views presented without seeking to adjudicate their differences
Humanitarian intervention by Terry Nardin( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, and Kosovo. All are examples where humanitarian intervention has been called into action. This timely and important new volume explores the legal and moral issues that emerge when one state uses military force to protect innocent people from violence perpetrated or permitted by the government of another. Humanitarian intervention can be seen as fulfilling a moral duty to protect, but it is also subject to misuse as an excuse for imperialism in violation of international lay."--Jacket

Michael Oakeshott's Cold War liberalism by Asan Institute for Policy Studies( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the Cold War, political thinkers in the West debated the balance between the requirements of liberal democracy and national security. This debate is relevant to East Asia and especially to Korea, where an ideological-military standoff between a democracy and a totalitarian system persists. The thinkers often identified as "Cold War liberals"--Isaiah Berlin, Karl Popper, Raymond Aron, Friedrich Hayek, and Michael Oakeshott--are worth revisiting in this context. Of these, Oakeshott is the least well understood in East Asia and therefore particularly deserving of attention. His ideas about the limits of rationalism in politics, the irrelevance of conventional views of liberalism and conservatism, how constitutional democracy should be defined, and how it can be defended against various forms of anti-liberal politics are especially valuable. In this book, leading Oakeshott scholars from around the world explore these ideas and their implications for East Asia in ten illuminating and readable essays"--

Rationality in politics and its limits( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The word `rationality' and its cognates, like `reason', have multiple contexts and connotations. Rational calculation can be contrasted with rational interpretation. There is the rationality of proof and of persuasion, of tradition and of the criticism of tradition. Rationalism (and rationalists) can be reasonable or unreasonable. Reason is sometimes distinguished from revelation, superstition, convention, prejudice, emotion, and chance, but all of these also involve reasoning. In politics, three views of rationality - economic, moral, and historical - have been especially important, often defining approaches to politics and political theory such as utilitarianism and rational choice theory. These approaches privilege positive or natural law, responsibilities, or human rights, and emphasize the importance of culture and tradition, and therefore meaning and context. This book explores the understanding of rationality in politics and the relations between different approaches to rationality. Among the topics considered are the limits of rationality, the role of imagination and emotion in politics, the meaning of political realism, the nature of political judgment, and the relationship between theory and practice. This book was originally published as a special issue of Global Discourse
