That noble science of politics : a study in nineteenth-century intellectual history by Stefan Collini( Book )

20 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this unusual and important work, three well-known historians of ideas examine the diverse forms taken in nineteenth-century Britain by the aspiration to develop what was then known as a 'science of politics'. This aspiration encompassed a more extensive and ambitious range of concerns than is implied by the modern term 'political science': in fact, as this book demonstrates, it remained the overarching category under which many nineteenth-century thinkers grouped their attempts to achieve systematic understanding of man's common life. As a result of both the over-concentration on closed abstract systems of thought and the intrusion of concerns which pervade much writing in the history of political theory and of the social sciences, these attempts have since been neglected or misrepresented. By deliberately avoiding such approaches, this book restores the subject to its centrality in the intellectual life and political culture of nineteenth-century Britain"--Publisher description

"The notion that our society, its education system and its intellectual life, is characterized by a split between two cultures - the arts or humanities on one hand, and the sciences on the other - has a long history. But it was C.P. Snow's Rede Lecture of 1959 that brought it to prominence and began a public debate that is still raging in the media today. This reissue The Two Cultures and its successor piece A Second Look (in which Snow responded to the controversy, four years later) has an introduction by Stefan Collini, charting the history and context of the debate, its implications and its afterlife"--Cover

"In this series of penetrating and attractively readable essays, Stefan Collini explores aspects of the literary and intellectual culture of Britain from the early twentieth century to the present. Collini focuses on critics and historians who wrote for a non-specialist readership, and on the periodicals and other genres through which they attempted to reach that readership." "Among the critics discussed are Cyril Connolly, V.S. Pritchett, Aldous Huxley, Rebecca West, Edmund Wilson, and George Orwell, while the historians include A.L. Rowse, Arthur Bryant, E.H. Carr, and E.P. Thompson. There are also essays on wider themes such as the fate of 'general' periodicals, the history of reading, the role of criticism, changing conceptions of 'culture', the limitations of biography, and the functions of universities. Explicitly addressed to 'the non-specialist reader', these essays make some of the fruits of detailed scholarly research in various fields available to a wider audience, while maintaining rigorous standards of analysis. The book will engage readers interested in literature, history, and contemporary cultural debate."--Jacket
