George Lawson's Politica and the English Revolution by Conal Condren( Book )

12 editions published between 1989 and 2002 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first full account, analysis and subsequent history of George Lawson's Politica, 1660-89. For long accepted as a significant figure, through his criticism of Hobbes and his possible influence on Locke, Lawson has never been studied in depth, nor has his biography been previously established. Professor Condren here provides the context and the analysis of Lawson's major work, in the process re-dating it and providing a quite different interpretation from previous readings. A substantial section is devoted to the history of the text and its use in controversies in the period 1660-89, and there is some reassessment of the relationship between Hobbes, Locke and Lawson. The study also uses Lawson's text to reopen questions about English seventeenth-century political theory in general, and to prefigure a theoretical study on metaphor and political conceptualisation. The book thus operates on a number of levels, philosophical and linguistic as well as historical

Argument and authority in early modern England : the presupposition of oaths and offices by Conal Condren( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conal Condren offers a radical reappraisal of the character of moral and political theory in early modern England through an exploration of pervasive arguments about office. In this context he explores the significance of oath-taking and three of the major crises around oaths and offices in the seventeenth century. This fresh focus on office brings into serious question much of what has been taken for granted in the study of early modern political and moral theory concerning, for example, the interplay of ideologies, the emergence of a public sphere, of liberalism, reason of state, de facto theory, and perhaps even political theory and moral agency as we know it. Argument and Authority is a major new work from a senior scholar of early modern political thought, of interest to a wide range of historians, philosophers and literary scholars
Satire, lies, and politics : the case of Dr Arbuthnot by Conal Condren( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This, the first full ANALYSIS of Arbuthnot's Art of Political lying (1712), argues that the work is a commentary on long-standing themes of debate in science, rhetoric and philosophy and should be seen as a seminal satire standing in opposition to the practice of Swift and Pope. Rather than simply condemning dishonesty, Arbuthnot raises serious questions about the elusive nature of truth in politics. The argument thus traverses literary ANALYSIS, intellectual history and philosophy. An original version of the Art of Political lying, based on English and French editions is supplied in the appen
Hobbes, the Scriblerians and the history of philosophy by Conal Condren( Book )
