The counterculture that developed in the 1960s rocked post-World War II America and changed the course of the 21st century. Its art, protest culture, and worldview, moreover, led AEI scholar Irving Kristol to identify the counterculture as “adversary to secular humanism” in a way that was previously “unthinkable.”

Kristol examines the origins and legacies of this counterculture—and how it continues to reverberate in the world of politics today.

This lecture was originally delivered in January 1994.
