It argues that Coleridge, from his earliest writings on politics and religion, had grounded his accounts of government and civil society in philosophical and theological understandings of truth. The article analyses three works that are key to understanding Coleridge's political and religious thought. These are The Statesman's Manual, Aids to Reflection, and On the Constitution of Church and State According to the Idea of Each.
