book cover The Achievement of Irving Babbitt
by Milton Hindus
In this essay from Autumn 1961, Milton Hindus looks back at the life and thought of Irving Babbitt, an important influence on T. S. Eliot and many others.

Real progress consists in the movement of mankind toward the understanding of norms, and toward conformity to norms. Real decadence consists in the movement of mankind away from the understanding of norms, and away from obedience to norms.

Russell Kirk, Enemies of the Permanent Things, 1969
