Imaginacyjny konserwatyzm Benjamina Disraelego
Languages of publication
Political thought of Benjamin Disraeli and his policy as a leader of Conservative Party marks a new stage in evolution of English conservatism. In particular catastrophic vision of W. Burke and nostalgic-retrospective conservatism of Lake Poets (S.T. Coleridge, W. Wordsworth and R. Southey) were forsaken. Disraeli is the first consequent conservative who treated evolutionary change as a method of development not only legitimate by history and neglected by modernity but still possible to implement in reality. Although the project of “conservative progress” made him a critic of liberal ideology, it let him accept basic institutions of liberal society in the name of their conservative correction.
