Modern Flaws and Lasting Norms

In this “Best of the Bookman” essay from 1969, Dr. Nicholas Joost reviews Russell Kirk’s Enemies of the Permanent Things. Readers interested in history and literature will be interested in the tone as much as his fascinating treatment of Kirk’s theme.

The Deviant University
by Donald Marquand Dozer
This 1969 essay, written during the educational uprisings of the time, is probably not the response to the student radicals expected from a conservative writer. And his critique of the modern university system still hits home today.

A poor man, if he has dignity, honesty, the respect of his neighbors, a realization of his duties, a love of the wisdom of his ancestors, and possibly some taste for knowledge or beauty, is rich in the unbought grace of life.
