Fifth of six weekly lectures by Isaiah Berlin
Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford
In these lectures Isaiah Berlin discusses the ideas of some social and political thinkers before and after the French Revolution which, in his view, have had a greater influence both for good and evil in the twentieth century than in their own time and are now more important than ever.
This lecture is concerned with the ideas ofClaude Henri de Rouvroy , Comte de St. Simon, who predicted, analysed, and welcomed the new centralised society of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries wi'th disturbing accuracy.
