Staff Profile:Alan Cromartie

Name:
Professor Alan Cromartie
Job Title:
Professor
Responsibilities:

I am the author of Sir Matthew Hale: law, religion, and natural philosophy (Cambridge: Cambridge UP, 1995) and The constitutionalist revolution: an essay on the history of England (Cambridge: Cambridge UP, 2006), and the editor of Thomas Hobbes, A dialogue between a philosopher and student, of the common laws of England (Oxford: Oxford UP, 2005). My present large-scale project is a monograph on Hobbes, but I have written on topics from Aristotle to John Rawls. I also enjoyed being Principal Investigator of the Leverhulme Trust Major Research Programme The Liberal Way of War for which I did work that ranged from a study of the role played by the concept of 'civilization' in thinking about war to analysis of a counterinsurgency manual. I retain an interest in military ethics. I welcome the chance to supervise postgraduate research in the history of political thought (especially in the early modern period) and the philosophy of history.
