The central claim of this book is that previous scholars have not appreciated the depths and complexities of the relationships between British idealist radicalism and the earlier idealist tradition of Kant, Fichte, Hegel and Carlyle. Colin Tyler explores two recurring themes: the first is that the foundations of British idealist thought were encapsulated within parts of Hegel's political theory that have been ignored or misunderstood. The second recurring theme is the concern of many British idealists to articulate the distinction between the virtues of an enriching community and a modern commercial society. The book makes extensive use of certain British idealist manuscripts which were not merely unpublished, but were undiscovered until very recently.
