'Mr. Oakeshott's thesis ... is so original, so important and so profound that criticism must be silent until his meaning has been long pondered ... the chapter on history is the most penetrating analysis of historical thought that has ever been written ... the whole book shows Mr Oakeshott to possess philosophical gifts of a very high order, coupled with an admirable command of language; his writing is as clear as his thought is profound, and all students of philosophy should be grateful to him for his brilliant contribution to philosophical literature.' R. G. Collingwood, The Cambridge ReviewPrésentation de l'éditeur :
This classic work is here published for the first time in paperback in recognition of its enduring importance. Its theme is Modality: human experience recognized as a variety of independent, self-consistent worlds of discourse, each the invention of human intelligence, but each also to be understood as abstract and an arrest in human experience. The theme is pursued in a consideration of the practical, the historical and the scientific modes of understanding.
