Summary
"In this analysis of John Macmurray, Frank G. Kirkpatrick traces the development of Macmurray's thought with its roots in the Bible, Hegel, and the democratic liberal tradition of the West. Kirkpatrick contends that Macmurray's most important contribution to the field is his development of a philosophical understanding of what constitutes an authentic community. Through this analysis, Kirkpatrick explores the extraordinary resonances of Macmurray's political thought in other modern philosophers and reveals his enduring significance."--BOOK JACKET
