Oakeshott – ‘Creative’
Michael Oakeshott as a ‘Philosopher of the Creative’
W.J. Coats Jr.
This book is a collection of eight essays on the work of the twentieth-century English philosophic essayist, Michael Oakeshott. Six of them advance the view in different ways that Oakeshott’s multifarious lifework may be understood as variations on a singular insight — that the structure of experiential reality is ‘creative’ or ‘poetic’.
