In this unprecedented work, Diefenbeck appeals to a subjective mode of thought, not expressible in terms of truth. The book is based on the conviction that objective thought and its standard of truth are inadequate for knowledge of politics and that a subjective form of connected knowledge is required. The author develops this idea by considering topics such as the relation of Church and State, the idea of rights in relation to a constitution, constitutional change, the relation between a constitution and legislation, and the conflict between politics and economics. Diefenbeck has composed a unique book that takes a new view of political theory. This book will be of special interest to students of government who are concerned with the theory behind it and students of philosophy who are interested in the fundamental form of knowledge appropriate for each study.
