Eighteenth-Century Dissent and Cambridge Platonism
Full Product Description
Price's philosophy of political liberty, and Wollstonecraft's feminism, both grounded in a Platonic conception of freedom, are perfectionist and radical rather than liberal. This has important implications for understanding the political nature of eighteenth-century theology: they represent not so much a shaking off of religion by secular rationality but a challenge to religious hegemony. By distinguishing Price and Wollstonecraft from other forms of rationalism including deism and Socinianism, this book takes issue with the popular division of eighteenth-century philosophy into rationalistic and empirical strands and, through considering the influence of the Cambridge Platonists, draws attention to an alternative philosophy of religion that lies between both empiricism and discursive inference.
