Linked bibliography for the SEP article "Edmund Burke" by Ian Harris
This is an automatically generated and experimental page
If everything goes well, this page should display the bibliography of the aforementioned article as it appears in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, but with links added to PhilPapers records and Google Scholar for your convenience. Some bibliographies are not going to be represented correctly or fully up to date. In general, bibliographies of recent works are going to be much better linked than bibliographies of primary literature and older works. Entries with PhilPapers records have links on their titles. A green link indicates that the item is available online at least partially.
This experiment has been authorized by the editors of the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. The original article and bibliography can be found here.
There is no complete edition of Burke’s works: their quantity, the
character of some of his manuscript materials and the manner in which
many of his parliamentary speeches are preserved all make it very
likely that this situation will continue. Neither have the editorial
problems implied in his writings and speeches been overcome
hitherto. For the present, there is, in nine, large substantive
volumes,: Writings and Speeches of Edmund Burke, P. Langford
(general editor), Oxford:Clarendon Press, 1981–2015. This,
though not without further problems peculiar to itself, does provide a
standard system reference for most of the items quoted here, and is
cited above as W & S, and individual works are cited as
||Conciliation with America.
||Reflections on the Revolution in France.
||Letters on a Regicide Peace.
||Second Speech on Conciliation.
||Speech on Declaratory Resolutions.
||Thoughts on the Cause of the Present Discontents.
||Tracts relating to Popery Laws.

There is further unprinted correspondence in various repositories.
The primary collections of Burke manuscripts are at Sheffield City
Archives and Northamptonshire Record Office, both in the United
Kingdom, but there is further material by Burke in a wider range of
places; the material in manuscript bearing on him is extremely bulky,
diverse and scattered.
There is relatively little recent literature primarily on Burke’s
philosophical writings, however ‘philosophical’ is defined,
though there is much that makes reference to or use of them: thus a
bibliography of writings about his views on beauty, gender, and
political organization, as well as his literary temper and practical
activities would be disproportionately long. The reader is therefore
invited to range freely. The secondary literature as a whole is listed
up to about 1980 in Clara I. Gandy and Peter J. Stanlis, 1983,
Edmund Burke: A Bibliography of Secondary Studies to 1982, New
York, Garland. There are annual listings in the Modern Humanities
Research Association’s volumes.
