David George Ritchie (1853-1903) was a key figure in the Idealism movement. Influenced by Hegel, Bradley, Toynbee, and above all T. H. Green, his political philosophy was firmly rooted in a concern for practical application. The foundation of his ethics was the ideal of the citizen's social well-being. He aimed to organize the fields of practical philosophy with the principles of Idealism, and in doing so combined his critical philosophy with his interest in modern science, history and Darwinism. In the history of political thought he was an important channel for the development and transfer of Green's ideas into the New Liberalism and socialist thinking.

This collection brings together for the first time all Ritchie's philosophically important works, including a wealth of hard-to-find materials. Together they represent the wide range of his philosophical interests -- from the philosophy of history, metaphysics, religion, and evolution, to animal rights, the morality of war, and the philosophy of art. The,collection belongs in all serious libraries of philosophy and politics.
