Ideologies of Conservatism


Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the influence of English idealist thought on Conservatism in the period c.1880-1914, and suggests that the ideas of T. H. Green and his fellow Oxford idealists may have had as important a resonance for Conservatives as they did for Liberals. Furthermore, by examining the Conservative collectivist ideas of an effectively unknown thinker, Arthur Boutwood, alongside those of better-known Conservative thinkers such as the historical economists W. J. Ashley, W. Cunningham, and W. A. S. Hewins, and the Compatriots Club, the chapter presents the first of the book's attempts to stress the importance of the ‘middlebrow’ in Conservative thought.
