A History of Irish Thought is the first complete introduction to Irish thought ever published. It presents a wide-ranging and inclusive survey of the varieties of Irish thought and the history of Irish ideas against the backdrop of the political and social change. Thomas Duddy offers a clearly written, engaging and stimulating exploration of the philosophers, polemicists, ideologists, satarists, scientists, poets and political and social reformers who have come out of Ireland. Beginning with the thought of the anonymous seventh-century monk, the Irish Augustine, we encounter among others John Scottus Eriugena, Robert Boyle, George Bekeley, Jonathan Swift, Francis Hutcheson, Edmund Burke on the through to the twentieth century which includes W.B.Yeats and Iris Murdoch. A History of Irish Thought rediscovers the liveliest and most contested issues in the Irish past, and brings the history of Irish thought up to date. It will be of great value to anyone interested in Irish culture and its intellectual history.
