Summary
"George Grant (1918-1988) is widely regarded as one of Canada's most influential philosophers and political theorists. This study aims to guide the reader towards a clearer understanding of Grant's thought. Focusing on his six short books and some of his most significant articles and speeches, Hugh Donald Forbes provides both an introduction to and an overview of Grant's career and his many contributions to the fields of political science, philosophy, religion, and Canadian studies. Throughout, Forbes sheds light on some of Grant's more contradictory and complex ideas, and provides an assessment of his impact on the Canadian political and cultural landscape."--Jacket
