The Making of Isaiah Berlin

"In Search of Isaiah Berlin" by Henry Hardy (Tauris, 2018) is the testimony of an editor that devoted the better part of his life to a search for Isaiah Berlin. Often, this was a literal search -- for unpublished texts buried in various corners of Headington House -- yet also metaphorically Hardy's task often was to find the appropriate meaning in vague or even contradictory passages of Berlin's writing. Often delightful and always interesting, the book, writes BRB contributor Mario Clemens, constitutes an essential contribution to the study of Berlin’s ideas, providing not only helpful commentary but also making available new materials and offering context and contour to Isaiah Berlin's intellectual development.
