Abstract

The thesis examines a particular application of Christianity to social and political theory in the thought of R.H. Tawney and the distinction between the Christian foundation of his thought, and the pragmatic or humanist expression of his argument. It considers a variety of criticisms of egalitarianism in so far as it casts a light on or challenges Tawney's arguments. It considers, too, the nature of his recommendations for a common culture as the basis for contemporary democratic socialism.
