Recent years have seen a growth of interest in the great English idealist thinker T. H. Green (1836-82) as philosophers have begun to overturn received opinions of his thought and to rediscover his original and important contributions to ethics, metaphysics, and political philosophy. Thiscollection of essays by leading experts, all but one published here for the first time, introduces and critically examines his ideas both in their context and in their relevance to contemporary debates.
Maria Dimova-Cookson is at University College London. William J. Mander is at Harris Manchester College, University of Oxford.

Editorial Reviews

"An original and first-rate contribution to a growing body of scholarship on this important Victorian era British philosopher.... There is no denying that this volume makes the best overall case for why we should take the philosophy of Thomas Hill Green seriously. I strongly recommend this book."--Derrick Darby, Ethics
