Edmund Burke (1729-1797) was an Anglo-Irish statesman, author, orator, political theorist, and philosopher.

He is mainly remembered for his support of the cause of the American Revolutionaries, and for his later opposition to the French Revolution. This, Burke's great aesthetic treatise, first published in 1757, was an advance in the uniting of philosophy with psychology. It attracted the attention of prominent Continental thinkers such as Denis Diderot and Immanuel Kant. All 18th century editions seem to be quite scarce. **PRICE JUST REDUCED! PHILOSOPHY BX 4.
