The Discourse on Political Pluralism in Early Eighteenth-Century England. A Conceptual Study with Special Reference to Terminology of Religious Origin
Finnish Historical Society
Bibliotheca Historica 36
Helsinki 1999, 375 pp.
Pasi Ihalainen's book demonstrates that political pluralism was generally conceptualised through terminology derived from the traditionally dominant religious discourse, which contributed to continuity in critical attitudes towards political parties. Yet significant shifts also occurred in the application of religious terminology of pluralism. These shifts include the gradual secularisation of the vocabularies of the political and of party. There also occurred a decline in the frequency of religious terms, as politics and religion became understood as separate, though analogous, spheres.
