John Macmurray
"John Macmurray is not one of the twentieth century's most famous philosophers. This is surprising. Actually his work is more accessible, better written, and above all far more relevant than most of what I and many others studied as hallowed texts at university. I also find him immensely modern... in the sense that he confronted what will be the critical political question of the twenty-first century: the relationship between individual and society" (Tony Blair, Prime Minister of England, "Foreword" to Philip Conford, The Personal World: John MacMurray on Self and Society. Edinburgh: Floris Books, 1997).
