Economy, polity, and society : British intellectual history, 1750-1950 by Stefan Collini( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economy, Polity, and Society and its companion volume History, Religion, and Culture bring together major new essays on British intellectual history by many of the leading scholars of the period, continuing a mode of enquiry for which Donald Winch and John Burrow have been widely celebrated. This volume addresses aspects of the eighteenth-century attempt, particularly in the work of Adam Smith, to come to grips with the nature of 'commercial society' and its distinctive notions of the self, of political liberty, and of economic progress. It then explores the adaptations of and responses to the Enlightenment legacy in the work of such early nineteenth-century figures as Jeremy Bentham, Tom Paine and Maria Edgeworth. Finally, in discussions which range up to the middle of the twentieth century, the volume examines particularly telling examples of the conflict between economic thinking and moral values
The Victorian eighteenth century : an intellectual history by B. W Young( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Victorians were preoccupied by the eighteenth century. It was central to many nineteenth-century debates, particularly those concerning the place of history and religion in national life. This book explores the diverse responses of key Victorian writers and thinkers, Thomas Carlyle, John Henry Newman, Leslie Stephen, Vernon Lee, and M.R. James to a period which commanded their interest throughout the Victorian era, from the accession of Queen Victoria to the opening decades of the twentieth century. They were, on the one hand, appalled by the apparent frivolity of the eighteenth century, which was denounced by Carlyle as a dispiriting successor to the culture of Puritan England, and, on the other they were concerned to continue its secularising influence on English culture, as is seen in the pioneering work of Leslie Stephen, who was passionately keen to transform the legacy of eighteenth-century scepticism into Victorian agnosticism. The Victorian interest in the eighteenth century was never a purely insular matter, and the history of eighteenth-century France, Germany, and Italy played a dominant role in the nineteenth-century historical understanding. A debate between generations was enacted, in which Romanticism melded into Victorianism. The Victorians were haunted by the eighteenth century, both metaphorically and literally, and the book closes with consideration of the culturally resonant eighteenth-century ghosts encountered in the fiction of Vernon Lee and M.R. James. " -- Book jacket
History, religion, and culture : British intellectual history, 1750-1950 by Stefan Collini( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The essays in History, Religion and Culture begin with discussions of eighteenth-century historiography, especially Gibbon's Decline and Fall; they then take up different aspects of the place of religion in nineteenth-century cultural and political life, such as attitudes toward the native religions of India, the Victorian perception of Oliver Cromwell, the role of the Quarterly Review and the religious sensibility of John Ruskin; and finally, in discussions that range up to the middle of the twentieth century, they explore relations between scientific ideas about change or development and assumptions about the nature and growth of the national community
