Thomas Hill Green (1836-82) was a figure of far-reaching influence, whose doctrines affected British thought and public policy more than any other philosopher around the turn of the century. Green used British Idealism as part of a practical programme of liberal reform. His special combination of moral individualism and collectivism led him to support the growth of the state's responsibility to the citizen, anticipating later developments such as the Welfare State. This volume contains a collection of miscellaneous works by Green, many of them not available in any other form. Here are 15 of his undergraduate essays, many dozens of his letters and speeches, plus several of his papers on moral and political philosophy. The text should be of interest to historians of politics and Idealism in Britain. The material is all reset, with full bibliographies and an index. There is an introduction and annotations by Peter Nicholson.
