Best of the Bookman 28 April 2013
book cover The Conservative Mind Renewed
by George H. Nash
We mark the 60th anniversary of Russell Kirk’s The Conservative Mind in 2013. In this “Best of the Bookman” review from 1979, Senior Fellow George H. Nash reviews the sixth edition on the book’s 25th anniversary.

The conservative believes that the individual is foolish, although the species is wise; therefore, unlike the confident intellectual, he declines to undertake the reconstruction of society and human nature.
