3 Berlin, Isaiah The Proper Study of Mankind: An Anthology of Essays
Farrar, Straus & Giroux 1997 0965607992 / 9780965607995 Paperback Very Good 
Clean softcover, with no marks or writing in book. Almost like new, but there is a trace of light wear to corners. 704 pages.

This selection of the best of Latvian-born British philosopher Isaiah Berlin's essays represents the full range of his work. The opening sections include Berlin's defence of philosophy and history against assimilation to the methods of science; his essays on liberty, which laid a foundation for subsequent discussion; and his exposition of his most distinctive doctrine - pluralism - which recognizes that equally good ultimate values may come into conflict. What follows are studies of Machiavelli, Vico and Herder, essays on Russian writers, and portraits of important contemporaries from Akhmatova and Pasternak to Churchill and Roosevelt. This collection encapsulates the principle movements that characterize the modern age.
