Ideas Have Consequences, Paperback (November 2013)
Originally published in 1948, at the height of post-World War II optimism and confidence in collective security, this title uses "words hard as cannonballs" to present an unsparing diagnosis of the ills of the modern age. It argues that the decline of Western civilization resulted from the rising acceptance of relativism over absolute reality.
Future Tense, Hardback (October 2012)
Many observers assume that our culture is living through one of those "world historical moments" that Hegel talked about: a plastic moment when many of the traditional assumptions about the shape and future of the culture are suddenly in play. In this title, each essay writer steps back to reflect on where we are as a culture.
