George Grant (1918-1988) is viewed by many as ‘Canada’s greatest political philosopher’. George/Sheila Grant were also Anglicans. There is little doubt that Grant was one of the most preeminent public intellectuals in Canada in the latter half of the 20th century. Few Anglicans in Canada have attained such status.
The fact that Grant was at the forefront of political, artistic, religious, literary and educational life in Canada cannot be missed. The publication of the Collected Works of George Grant began in 2000 with Volume 1, and the recent publication of Volume 4 (more than a 1000 pages) brings to a close a decade of serious sleuth work to compile primary material by Grant.
