Canada’s Simon Fraser University has scheduled a Continuing Studies course for September, 2015 in Vancouver, on “Considering Conservatism: Stability and Social Continuity”.
The course will focus on Edmund Burke, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Michael Oakeshott, and costs “$169” (although adults over 55 years old get a $59 discount – I presume both figures are in Canadian dollars).
The University of Leiden’s Robbert-Jan Winters turned to Oakeshott’s theory of civil and enterprise association for insights in a July 2015 “mini-conference” at Oxford.
“Although Oakeshott is not widely read, I argue that he offers a philosophically sophisticated definition of politics that allows us to understand what it must mean, as opposed to what we would like it to mean…”
The Humane Philosophy YouTube channel has a video of the session (Note: the discussion of Oakeshott begins at the 13 minute mark).
May 2015 saw Palgrave Macmillan release an anthology exploring Michael Oakeshott’s Cold War Liberalism.
Edited by long-term Oakeshottian Terry Nardin, the volume includes papers from a conference held three years ago at South Korea’s Asan Institute for Policy Studies.
The book is available in hardcover and EPUB format.
Please note: In a previous post, we linked to videos from the conference available on Vimeo.
Also, one of the chapters in the new volume is Andrew Gamble’s “Oakeshott and Totalitarianism”; we linked to Gamble’s June 2015 lecture on the same topic in a post last month.
