The continuing growth of worldwide interest in Michael Oakeshott's philosophy and political theory has recently (2016) been marked by the publication of two 'Companion to Oakeshott’ volumes. This event provides a welcome opportunity to explore the reasons for his influence both within the West and beyond it.

Essays by contributors from Britain, Canada, Hong Kong, India, and the USA provide a comprehensive critical assessment of the principal aspects of Oakeshott’s thought that account for his contemporary relevance.

The unusually multi-national background of the authors aims to give the volume a wide appeal, extending not only to those already familiar with Oakeshott’s writings but also to those as yet unfamiliar with them, regardless of their cultural background.

All the contributors have attempted to write in a way that makes Oakeshott as accessible as possible.

Keywords: Philosophy, Oakeshott, idealism, politics, political theory, legend, history, practical past, morality, historicism, conservatism, modernity, Leo Strauss, Hayek, liberalism
