Live Where We Are
an interview by
- A conversation with John Byron Kuhner, author of a Walden-esque book about Staten Island.
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.”
Mere unthinking negative opposition to the current of events, clutching in despair at what we still retain, will not suffice in this age. A conservatism of instinct must be reinforced by a conservatism of thought and imagination.
The Edmund Burke Society of America is pleased to announce a call for papers and open registration for “Edmund Burke and Patriotism,” their third conference on Edmund Burke. It will be held on February 27 and 28, 2015 at Villanova University. Keynote addresses will be from David Bromwich, Michael Brown, and Regina Janes. Please see this link for details and to register.
