Revolt Against Modernity
|Availability:||In stock (8)|
Provides the first comparison of the thought of these two political philosophers and its influence on contemporary American conservatism. Since the appearance in 1950 of Strauss's Natural Right and History and Voegelin's Order and History , conservatives have frequently turned to these thinkers to support their attacks on liberalism and the modernist mind set. McAllister's (history, Vanderbilt U.) reevaluation reveals the social, historical, political, and philosophical foundations of their work and decodes their frequently opaque or esoteric thinking.
