Committee.[19] Academia[edit] Skinner is regarded as one of the founders of the 'Cambridge School' of the history of political thought, best known for its attention to what J.G.A. Pocock has described as the ‘languages’ in which moral and political philosophy has been written.[20] Skinner’s contribution has been to articulate a theory of interpretation in which leading texts in the history of political theory are treated essentially as interventions in on-going political debates, and in which the main focus is on what individual writers may be said to have been doing in what they wrote.[21] One consequence of this view is an emphasis on the necessity of studying less well-known political writers as a means of shedding light on the classic authors – although it also consciously questions the extent to which it is possible to isolate so-called ‘classic’ texts. In its earlier versions this added up to what many have seen as a persuasive critique of the approach of an older generation, and particularly of Leo Strauss and his followers.[22] Skinner has been exceptionally influential as a teacher, and a large number of his former PhD students have gone on to distinguished academic careers, including David Armitage, Richard Bellamy, Annabel Brett, Martin Dzelzainis, Andrew Fitzmaurice, Mark Goldie, Karen Kupperman, Eric M. Nelson, Jürgen Overhoff, Markku Peltonen, Richard Tuck, and James Tully. Skinner's historical work has mainly focused on political thinking in early-modern Europe. He has written a book on Niccolò Machiavelli, three books on Thomas Hobbes, and his Foundations of Modern Political Thought covers the whole period. He has specifically been concerned with the emergence of modern theories about the nature of the state, and with debates about the nature of political liberty.[23] He has written one book about what he calls the ‘neo-Roman’ view that liberty essentially consists in not being dependent on the arbitrary will of others (Liberty Before Liberalism, 1998), and another about Hobbes’s largely successful challenge to this view with the claim that liberty simply consists in absence of impediments to action (Hobbes and Republican Liberty, 2008). The other main focus of Skinner’s research, which can perhaps be traced to the influence of Wittgenstein and Austin manifest in his early philosophical articles, has been on the history of rhetoric. The first volume of his Foundations traces the re-emergence of classical rhetoric in the Renaissance. His Reason and Rhetoric in the Philosophy of Hobbes (1996) examines the attempt to discredit rhetorical methods of argument in the scientific revolution. His latest monograph, Forensic Shakespeare (2014) illustrates how, in a group of ‘forensic’ plays of which the most important are Julius Caesar, Hamlet and Othello, Shakespeare makes extensive use of the classical theory of rhetorical ‘invention’ to structure a number of speeches and scenes. Skinner has also been extremely active as an editor. For many years he co-edited, with Raymond Geuss, the Cambridge University Press
Cambridge University Press
series, Cambridge Texts in the History
History
of Political Thought, in which 100 volumes have so far appeared. Skinner is now General Editor of the series, and is overseeing its current expansion into the publication of non-Western texts. He was also a founding editor, and later co-editor with James Tully, of the Cambridge University Press's series in intellectual history, Ideas in Context. Miscellany[edit] When Skinner was interviewed by Professor Alan MacFarlane as part of his series of online interviews with academics, Skinner admitted that he had been a member of the Cambridge Apostles, a secret debating society in Cambridge University. He also revealed that Amartya Sen
Amartya Sen
was a member at the same time. He commented that they had both been ‘outed’ in a book published about the Apostles some time before.[24] On 6 October 1995, Skinner's Foundations of Modern Political Thought was included in the list published by The Times Literary Supplement of ‘The 100 Most Influential Books since World War II’.[25] On 14 May 2009, Times Higher Education, in an article about Skinner’s move from Cambridge to the University of London, spoke of Skinner's republicanism, reporting that this led him to refuse a knighthood he was offered when he became Regius Professor of History at Cambridge.[26] Principal publications[edit] Books[edit] 1.
