This collection of recent scholarship on the thought of Michael Oakeshott includes essays by both distinguished and established authors as well as a fresh crop of younger talent. Together, they address the meanings of Oakeshott's conservatism through the lenses of his ideas on religion, history, and tradition, and explore his relationships to philosophers ranging from Hume to Ryle, Cavell, and others. The collection assigns no single or final meaning to Oakeshott's conservatism, but finds in him a number of possibilities for thinking fruitfully about what conservatism might mean, when it is no longer considered as a doctrine, but as a habit or a turn of mind.

Keywords: Oakeshott, philosophy, conservatism, religion, history, tradition, Hume, Ryle, Cavell, skepticism, scepticism, Chritianity, civilisation, civilization, art, modal formalism, politics, law, freedom, romanticism, modernity, arendt, Rorty, liberalism, conversation, poetry, communism
