A Life of H.L.A. Hart

This chapter details H. L. A. Hart's post-war career. In September 1945, Herbert returned to an Oxford that was a cloistered, parochial, and largely masculine community. New College was not, in most ways, substantially different from the small community of scholars he had left in 1929. It was surrounded by thirty-odd other such communities, only five of which were for women; and it operated within the framework of only a fragmentary university structure. The small number of Fellows at New College further contributed to an intense and emotionally complex network of social relationships which in many respects resembled a family more than a workplace.
