    Mark Philp (2010). What is to Be Done? Political Theory and Political Realism. European Journal of Political Theory 9 (4):466-484.
    This article argues for greater realism in political theory with respect to judgements about what politicians ought to do and how they ought to act. It shows that there are major problems in deducing what a given politician should do from the value commitments that are common to liberalism and it makes a case for recognizing the major role played by the context of action and particular agent involved. It distinguishes political virtue from moral virtues and argues that the ‘decisionist’ (...)

    Mark Philp (2012). Realism Without Illusions. Political Theory 40 (5):629 - 649.
    This essay engages critically with the recent emergence of "political realism" in political theory (centrally in the work of Raymond Geuss and Bernard Williams).

    Mark Philp (1993). The Role of America in the 'Debate on France' 1791–5: Thomas Paine's Insertion. Utilitas 5 (2):221.
    It is a commonplace of British History that following the onset of the French Revolution and the publication of Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France a widespread debate on political principles took place. The ‘debate on France’—the trial of the French Revolution before the enlightened and independent tribunal of the English public, as James Mackintosh referred to it,—was, according to Alfred Cobban, ‘perhaps the last real discussion of the fundamentals of politics in this country’.
