“Isaiah Berlin’s Two Concepts of Liberty”

Toscano, Roberto, “Isaiah Berlin’s Two Concepts of Liberty."    


“It has always been difficult, if not impossible, to categorise Isaiah
Berlin according to specific intellectual disciplines: Was he a
«historian of thought» or a political philosopher? Berlin himself,
with his eminently critical mind and non-dogmatic approach,
always refused to be included in any school or intellectual group,
and even to stick, in his interests and in his work, to a single
discipline. This is why he never wrote any magnum opus,
preferring instead, both Fox and Hedgehog, to transmit what
was the main core of his liberal belief (the Big Truth he knew)
through a lively and manifold series of essays only apparently
scattered but actually deeply consistent and coherent.”
