Gregory Wolfe
In this review published in the early 1980s, Gregory Wolfe looks at an early collection of essays on the work of the philosopher Eric Voegelin (1901–1985), who famously criticized ideological efforts to “immanentize the eschaton.” The essays offer a good introduction to the scope of Voegelin’s thought and the concerns of some critics.

The Classics Revisited 30 January 2011

Part of the Bookman’s mission is to continue the conversation of ideas through the recognition and discussion of important books. This column seeks to provide a service to those readers who have perhaps not found the time—due to the demands of work and other responsibilities—to read (or reread) such books yet. We plan to cover additional books in the coming months, both recognized classics as well as those of particular importance to the conservative intellectual tradition. We hope you enjoy “The Classics Revisited.”

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
