Edmund Burke and the Origins of Modern Conservatism

Session 10
to
Introductory Course

Prior to Edmund Burke, partisanship was widely decried as a serious malady to the body politic and the common good. The statesman and philosopher most associated with modern conservativism defended parties on the grounds of principle. This lecture will examine why and ask whether Burke succeeded, especially in light of the continuing critiques of partisanship from religious and moral leaders.
