More About In Search of Isaiah Berlin by Henry Hardy
 
 
 
Overview
Isaiah Berlin was one of the greatest thinkers of the 20th century--a man who set ideas on fire. His defence of liberty and plurality was passionate and persuasive and inspired a generation. His ideas--especially his reasoned rejection of excessive certainty and political despotism--have become even more prescient and vital today. But who was the man behind such influential philosophies?

In Search of Isaiah Berlin tells the compelling story of a decades-long collaboration between Berlin and his editor, Henry Hardy, who made it his vocation to bring Berlin's huge body of work into print. Hardy discovered that Berlin had written far more than people thought, much of it unpublished. As he describes his struggles with Berlin, who was almost on principle unwilling to have his work published, an intimate and revealing picture of the self-deprecating philosopher emerges.

What results is a unique portrait of a man who illuminated a new way of thinking about the world, yet whose own life has for so long remained in the shadows.
