Strong Essays on Burke
- Edmund Burke, the Enlightenment and the Modern World, edited by Peter J. Stanlis. Detroit: University of Detroit Press, 1967. 129 pp.
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.
