It is because I do so that I think it necessary for me that there should be no mistake. We are now in a condition to discern, with tolerable exactness, the true nature of the object held up to our imitation. Was Burke a friend or a foe of revolution? He gives us a fresh assessment of the great statesman, who enjoys even greater influence today than in his own time.

The first half is given over to a fairly standard account of Burke's life and career, while the second part takes a closer look at his Edmund Burke book. A radical is somebody who is averse to compromise, because they are sure they are right and good, while their opponents are wrong and wicked. Pretty impressive claims for one man!

The formal cause of beauty is the passion of love; the material cause concerns aspects of certain objects such as smallness, smoothness, delicacy, etc. While admitting that theoretically in some cases it might be desirable, he insisted a Edmund Burke book government in Britain in his day would not only be inept, but also oppressive. It is his duty to sacrifice his repose, his pleasures, his satisfactions, to theirs; and above all, ever, and in all cases, to prefer their interest to his own. According to Kant, Burke merely gathered data so that some future thinker could explain them. InEdmund was appointed as the Paymaster of the Forces and a Privy Councillor, however, he was not given a cabinet seat. However, Norman shows the influence that Burke's thinking had on how Parliament developed in Britain and, Norman claims, in America — an influence still felt today.

He claimed the English national character was being changed by this authoritarianism. All the pleasing illusions, which made power gentle, and obedience liberal, which harmonized the different shades of life, and which, by a bland assimilation, incorporated into politics the sentiments which beautify and soften private society, are to be dissolved by this new conquering empire of light and reason.

Their humanity is savage and brutal. The world would then have the means of knowing how many they are; who they are; and of what value their opinions may be, from their personal abilities, from their knowledge, their experience, or their lead and authority in this state.

The institution of this society appears to be of a charitable, and so far of a laudable nature: it was intended for the circulation, at the expense of the members, of many books, which few others would be at the expense of buying; and which might lie on the hands of the booksellers, to the great loss of an useful body of men.
