Product Description

Review

`Oakeshott presents three essays: on the theoretical understanding of human conduct, on the civil condition as the ideal mode of human association, and on the modern European state ... this book is rather like a long elegant conversation - sometimes rather abstract, always with a keen eye for concrete exemplification, learned, analytical, and full of trenchant insights.' Library Journal

The other review is grotesquely inadequate. Little more need be said about a classic work of political philosophy.

Format: Paperback
The book's three essays provide some interesting but subjective perspectives on human conduct. The first part provides basic theoretical understanding of human conduct in general, but misses important theatrical aspects of modern social science ; the second part that deals with an ideal mode of human relationships the so called "civil association" fails to integrate current social research findings; and the third part of the historic association commonly called a modern European state appears somewhat biased.

I bought this as
a gift for a son who is a reader, and I read a review which lead me to believe he would enjoy owning and reading it.
