Josiah Lee Auspitz on Oakeshott

Long-time Oakeshott student Josiah Lee Auspitz has begun putting his philosophical and political writings on the web – starting with his work on Oakeshott.

There are several gems, including Auspitz’s beautifully written 1991 American Scholar obituary for Oakeshott, which I think still ranks as one of the finest essays in the crop from that era (we have long had a copy here on the MOA site, too).

Perhaps the current highlight, in terms of recency, is the essay “Deciding versus Choosing”, first published in the German and English anthology Praxis und Politik–Michael Oakeshott im Dialog. This came out last year (2013), and included papers from the MOA’s 2007 conference.
