You are invited to participate in this symposium on James Tullys Public Philosophy in a New
Key (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2008), which has been organized by Richard
Bourke, Joel Isaac and Quentin Skinner under the auspices of the Centre for the Study of the
History of Political Thought and the Department of History at Queen Mary, University of
London. The symposium will address different aspects of Tullys recent two-volume work in
political philosophy, focusing in particular on the themes of Democracy and Imperialism. There

Presentations will be followed by open discussion.
