"Hampshire's contribution to philosophy . . . is highly individual. . . . His work displays a broad and systematic outlook, concerned with bringing together views in the theory of knowledge, metaphysics, the philosophy of mind, ethics, and aesthetics. . . . His philosophical style is distinctive, a sensitive blend of the argumentative and the exploratory."--Bernard Williams, "The Encyclopedia of Philosophy"


Preface ix Chapter I The Soul and the City 1 Chapter II Against Monotheism 49 Chapter III Conflict and Conflict Resolution 77

"This elegant small volume ... offers a novel account of how to reason about the universal and particular in politics by examining the tensions between them in the workings of the human mind."--Mark Lilla, The New York Review of Books "This book deserves a wide attentive readership... Hampshire ... believes that the paradigm of deliberative reason lies in public forums like the courts rather than individual delibertation, which has dominated recent philosophical treatments of the subject... [He] denies reason can show some particular conception of justice to be best."--Glen Newey, Times Literary Supplement
