Contributor Post Created with Sketch. ACF PoMoCon #16: Pat Deneen on Lawler

 

Here at the ACF we’ve started a series of podcasts to remember the late professor of political philosophy and public intellectual Peter Lawler on the third anniversary of his death. Peter was a friend and mentor to many of us at the ACF, as well as many others. The first in the series is a discussion with Prof. Pat Deneen of Notre Dame, who has become famous for his book, Why Liberalism Failed, one of the rare books recommended both by conservatives and former president Barack Obama. We talk about Tocqueville, Strauss, the dangers democracy faces, and the right style for conservatives–the debate between post-modern conservatism and traditional conservatism! Friends, listen, read some Peter Lawler, and share our podcast!

    Hey. Walker Percy! 

    I’m interested. So after I check out Percy, which Lawler book would you recommend as a starter?

    You could start with Stuck with virtue.

    If you want to read Lawler on Percy, the core chapters of Postmodernism rightly understood deal with Lost in the Cosmos & The Thanatos Syndrome.
