Deja Reviews: Florence King All Over Again: Selections from National Review and The American Spectator
Florence King

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2006

Great writing is timeless, and so it is with Deja Reviews . Fifteen years later, five years, no matter how "old" her review, no matter how dated the topic of an essay, readers of this hearty collection will find that Miss Florence King's sharp, crafted prose still dazzles, sizzles, and edures, which is why she finds herself in the exclusive company of great American writers and humorists, such as Dorothy Parker, H. L. Mencken, and Westbrook ...

Science, Politics, and Gnosticism
Eric Voegelin, Ellis Sandoz

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2004

First published in 1968, Science, Politics and Gnosticism comprises two essays by Eric Voegelin (1901–85), arguably one of the most provocative and influential political philosophers of the last century. In these essays, Voegelin contends that certain modern movements, including positivism, Hegelianism, Marxism, and the "God is dead" school, are variants of the gnostic tradition he identified in his classic work The New Science of Politics. ...


The Nature of Nature: Examining the Role of Naturalism in Science

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2011

The world’s leading authorities in the sciences and humanities—dozens of top scholars, including three Nobel laureates —join a cultural and intellectual battle that leaves no human life untouched. Is the universe self-existent, self-sufficient, and self-organizing, or is it grounded instead in a reality that transcends space, time, matter, and energy?


Redeeming Economics: Rediscovering the Missing Element

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2014

“Groundbreaking.” — Washington Examiner Economics is primed for—and in desperate need of—a revolution, respected economic forecaster John D. Mueller shows in this eye-opening book. To make the leap forward will require looking backward, for as  Redeeming Economics  reveals, the most important element of economic theory has been ignored for more than two centuries. Since the great Adam Smith tore down this pillar of economic ...


Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child
Mr. Anthony Esolen

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2013

“Esolen signals with this book his presence in the top rank of authors of cultural criticism.” — American Spectator Play dates, soccer practice, day care, political correctness, drudgery without facts, television, video games, constant supervision, endless distractions: these and other insidious trends in child rearing and education are now the hallmarks of childhood. As author Anthony Esolen demonstrates in this elegantly written, ...


Climbing Parnassus: A New Apologia for Greek and Latin
Tracy Lee Simmons

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2007

In Climbing Parnassus , winner of the 2005 Paideia Prize, Tracy Lee Simmons presents a defense and vindication of the formative power of Greek and Latin. His persuasive witness to the unique, now all-but-forgotten advantages of study in and of the classical languages constitutes a bracing reminder of the genuine aims of a truly liberal education.


Conscience and Its Enemies: Confronting the Dogmas of Liberal Secularism

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2014

Exposing the Dogmas of Liberalism “Many in elite circles yield to the temptation to believe that anyone who disagrees with them is a bigot or a religious fundamentalist. Reason and science, they confidently believe, are on their side. With this book, I aim to expose the emptiness of that belief.” —From the introduction Assaults on religious liberty and traditional morality are growing fiercer. Here, at last, is the counterattack. ...


The Great Tradition: Classic Readings on What it Means to Be an Educated Human Being

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2007

Frustrated with the continuing educational crisis of our time, concerned parents, teachers, and students sense that true reform requires more than innovative classroom technology, standardized tests, or skills training. An older tradition—the Great Tradition—of education in the West is waiting to be heard. Since antiquity, the Great Tradition has defined education first and foremost as the hard work of rightly ordering the human soul, ...


Eliot and His Age: T. S. Eliot's Moral Imagination in the Twentieth Century

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2014

Eliot and His Age  remains the best introduction to T. S. Eliot’s life, ideas, and literary works. It is the essential starting place for anyone who would understand what Eliot was about. Russell Kirk’s view of his older friend is sympathetic but not adulatory. His insights into Eliot’s writings are informed by wide reading in the same authors who most influenced the poet, as well as by similar experiences and convictions. Kirk ...


Encounters: My Life with Nixon, Marcuse, and Other Friends and Teachers
Paul Gottfried

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2009

Paul Gottfried has spent a lifetime asking politically incorrect questions, untimely questions that have made him more unpopular among some timid “movement” conservatives than among critical theorists, Central European Marxists, and assorted other debating and dining partners. But in Encounters: My Life with Nixon, Marcuse, and Other Friends and Teachers, Gottfried puts past political battles aside in order to recount his varied ...


The End of the Modern World
Romano Guardini

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 1998

This expanded edition of Guardini's classic work includes the original text of The End of the Modern World, as well as the entirety of its explicit sequel, Power and Responsibility, in which Guardini analyzes modern man's conception of himself in the world and examines nature and use of power. The principle of individual responsibility weaves both works into a seamless, comprehensive, and compelling moral statement.


On The Unseriousness Of Human Affairs: Teaching Writing Playing Believing
James V. Schall

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2012

"Readers will not go wrong 'wasting' the time it takes to cavort with the eternal truths presented, with such an enervating spirit of fun, in "On the Unseriousness of Human Affairs."" --"National Catholic Register" "It is a book lightly written, laced with references to Charlie Brown and other cartoons, but deceptively heavy. I found myself inclined--almost forced--to pause after every section and think about Schall's ...


A Century of Horrors: Communism, Nazism, and the Uniqueness of the Shoah (Crosscurrents)
Alain Besancon

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2007

The twentieth century bears the indelible imprint of both communism and Nazism. Today, it sometimes seems as if the former is all but forgotten, at least among Western elites, while our cultural memory of the latter is an inextinguishable fire. This inequality is surprising and calls out for explanation, a task the French political thinker Alain Besançon attempts here in a wise and elegant meditation.   In examining the horror and ...


The Essential Russell Kirk: Selected Essays
Russell Kirk

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2006


Beauty Will Save the World: Recovering the Human in an Ideological Age
Gregory Wolfe

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2014

Culture, Not Politics We live in a politicized time. Culture wars and increasingly partisan conflicts have reduced public discourse to shouting matches between ideologues. But rather than merely bemoaning the vulgarity and sloganeering of this era, says acclaimed author and editor Gregory Wolfe, we should seek to enrich the language of civil discourse. And the best way to do that, Wolfe believes, is to draw nourishment from the deepest sources ...

Living on Fire: The Life of L. Brent Bozell Jr.

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2014

“A triumph . . . A moving, beautifully written biography.” — National Review From the beginning, L. Brent Bozell seemed destined for great things.   An extraordinary orator, the young man with fiery red hair won a national debate competition in high school and later was elected president of Yale’s storied Political Union, where his debating partner was his close friend William F. Buckley Jr. In less than a decade after graduating ...


A Time to Speak: Selected Writings and Arguments (American Ideals & Institutions)
Hon. Robert H. Bork

Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 2008

Since at least 1971, when he published a seminal article on constitutional interpretation in the Indiana Law Journal, Robert Bork has been the legal and moral conscience of America, reminding us of our founding principles and their cultural foundation. The scourge of liberal ideologues both before and after Ronald Reagan nominated him for the Supreme Court in 1987, Bork has for fifty years unwaveringly exposed—and explained—the hypocrisy and ...
