George Kateb, Lincoln’s Political Thought, 1st ed
An Influential Look at the Complexity of Lincoln’s Thought
In Lincoln’s Political Thought George Kateb, one of the most influential philosophers of liberalism, turns his attention to the complexity of Lincoln’s political thinking.
At the center of Lincoln’s career is an intense passion for equality, a passion that runs so deep in his speeches, messages and letters that it has the force of religious conviction. The man who emerges in Kateb’s account proves himself adequate to the most terrible political situation in American history.
Lincoln’s Political Life, however, illustrates the unsettling truth that in democratic politics – perhaps in all politics – it is nearly impossible to do the right thing for the right reasons, honestly stated.
