Best of the Bookman 31 July 2011
book cover Robert Nisbet and the Idea of Community
by Fred Donovan Hill
This “Best of the Bookman” essay from 1978 discusses Robert Nisbet's understanding of community and in particular his reading of the great sociologists on the subject of the severe and even pathological isolation of the individual in modern society.

The twentieth-century conservative is concerned, first of all, with the regeneration of the spirit and character—with the perennial problem of the inner order of the soul, the restoration of the ethical understanding, and the religious sanction upon which any life worth living is founded. This is conservatism at the highest.
