Biography

David Burchell has written on early modern political thought and the histories of ethics, citizenship, and religious toleration, and also contributes regularly to current social and political debates . His early modern publications include the co-edited volume (with Juliet Cummins) Science, Literature and Rhetoric in Early Modern England (Ashgate, 2007), and a range of articles in journals such as History of Political Thought, Renaissance Studies, Continuum, Ethnicities  and Economy and Society.  His contemporary political studies include Western Horizon (Scribe, 2003) and The Prince’s New Clothes (co-edited with Andrew Leigh; UNSW Press, 2004). He was for some years a weekly columnist for The Australian newspaper, and is a regular guest and occasional host on ABC Radio National. His current interests include the history of the loss-of-faith of the Western intelligentsia, and the genealogy of the idea of empathy in political and moral life.
