The Place of Ideology in Political Life

D.J. Manning, T.J. Robinson

First published in 1985, The Place of Ideology in Political Life explores the concept of 'ideology' in terms of its philosophical and intellectual underpinnings. Ideology is a term much bandied about by politicians and political thinkers with very little precision employed in its use. Despite acknowledgement in the literature of political studies that ideology plays a part in political life, there exist no precise accounts of the nature of that contribution. This book attempts to take a step towards redressing the balance by determining the sense in which ideology constitutes a genuine form of understanding human relationships and the place understanding has in all political activity regardless of whether or not any particular ideology is to be approved or condemned.

This concise work will be invaluable to all students of politics, philosophy of action, ethics, and history of political thought.
