A Turning-Point in the History of Political Thought

(p.287) The Birth of Greek Individualism

Isaiah Berlin

Oxford University Press

This is the first of the three Storrs Lectures that Berlin gave at Yale University in 1962. It is part of the version of intellectual history that he developed to underwrite his views about politics. This focused especially on the fourth century B.C., the Renaissance and the Romantic movement. The contribution of the Greeks, in this respect, was the discovery that the life and destiny of the individual did not need to be necessarily conceived in terms of his society.

Keywords:   Isaiah Berlin, individualism, Storrs Lectures, Renaissance, Romanticism, Yale University
