Review of Oakeshott’s Lectures in the History of Political Thought (Peter Coleman, 2006)

Escaping Plato’s Cave is Peter Coleman’s review of Oakeshott’s Lectures in the History of Political Thought. It was first published in the April 2006 edition of Australia’s Quadrant magazine.

Coleman includes some brief observations on the differences between the published texts of the lectures (which date from the late 1960s) and the versions he heard as an LSE student in the early 1950s.
