    MacCallum, Baldwin and Green on Freedom: One Concept, Two Conceptions, and One Complex Conception
    Collingwood and British Idealism Studies 25 (1): 101-128. 2019.
    Abstract This essay dethrones the negative-positive distinction, commonly put forward as the adequate account of Green’s conception of freedom, replacing it with an inner/outer account. On this account, rightly understood, Green’s freedom of self-realization is a complex conception that consists in the entwining together of distinctive human capacities (inner/internal) and just social institutions (outer/external). To unlock that complexity MacCallum’s single triadic concept of freedom is an e…Read more

    The essay aims to reveal the priority of the ‘social’ over the ‘political’ in Bosanquet's thought by making more prominent what Bosanquet calls ‘social’. It is the domain of human connectedness and cooperation that occupies the space between the ‘political’, state action, and the personal, narrowly conceived individual. The centrality of the ‘social’ emerges against the backdrop of two rival interpretations of Bosanquet's relationship with British Idealism over state action. The one claims that …Read more

    Berlin and Bosanquet: True self and positive freedom
    European Journal of Political Theory 15 (1): 3-21. 2016.
    Is the Idealist conception of positive freedom doomed as politically dangerous? Decidedly yes, Berlin famously argues. The danger lies with manipulating positive freedom into a political tool of tyranny, coercing individuals to be free. The vehicle of manipulation is a conception of a divided self that underpins positive freedom. For, Berlin argues, conceptions of freedom derive directly from views of what constitutes a self. He cites the British Idealists as evidence for his criticism. The case…Read more

    A quotation from Hegel serves as a motif of Tyler’s book: ‘The learner always begins by finding fault, but the scholar sees positive merit in everything.’ It is a chief merit of Tyler’s book that, though he pursues an internal critique of Green’s philosophy, its aim is not simply to find faults, but, importantly, to uncover the ‘positive merit’ in Green’s philosophy. For, as Tyler correctly holds, ‘there is much to be gained from a return to the serious study of Green’s writings.’ And there is m…Read more

    Was T. H. Green a Utilitarian?*: Avital Simhony
    Utilitas 7 (1): 121-144. 1995.
    Was Green a utilitarian? At least two studies suggest that he was, at least in some sense. One claim is inspired by Macpherson's association of nineteenth-century liberalism with utilitarianism. Drawing on this argument, Greengarten and Hansen claim that Green's departure from utilitarianism is only partial. His commitment to capitalism indicates a subscription to utilitarianism since the latter is the justificatory force of capitalist institutions.
