Edmund Burke - definition of Edmund Burke in Encyclopedia (517 words)
Edmund Burke (January 12, 1729—July 9, 1797) was an Irish philosopher, Whig politician and statesman, remembered principally for his criticism of the French Revolution and his discussion of "the sublime." He was a founder of the Annual Register and is regarded as the father of modern conservatism.
To Burke, the moral claim of the revolution to be in defence of the natural "rights of man" was a nonsense: although the British parliament depended on the approval of the British people for its authority to rule, this did not mean that citizens had the right to influence their rulers.
Burke was a ruthless critic, however, of the excesses of established government: he campaigned against the persecution of Catholics in Ireland, denounced the East India Company and had Warren Hastings, the governor-general of Bengal, impeached.
