book cover The Problem of Democratic Individualism
by Peter Augustine Lawler
In this item from 1988, Peter Augustine Lawler looks at both Tocqueville and Robert Bellah to illuminate the problem of democratic individualism.

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.
