  • Description: What Edmund Burke did in the "Reflections" was to construct a powerful myth of English history, in which England settled down from precedent to precedent, unlike the violence of the French Revolution. Burke made permanent contributions to political philosophy, but discreetly avoided the fact that the parliamentary eminence from which he spoke had been born in the cannon and musket fire of the 17th century English Revolution.
