Informations and abstract

Keywords: Richard Price, American revolution, Self-government, Patriotism, Ed- mund Burke, Mary Wollstonecraft.

Richard’s Price political writings defend the reasons of the American colonies at the time of revolution and offer an admirable example of rational patriotism. English politics is accused to act in open conflict with the principles of civil liberty and self-government. In the international debate of his time, Price is a central figure also to understand the fiery controversy with the prominent intellectual figures as Edmund Burke and Mary Wollstonecraft about the political meaning of the late Eighteenth-Century Revolutions.
