Richard M. Weaver: Visions of Order

The Cultural Crisis of Our Time

ISI Books, 1995 (1964)     Amazon.com

Book Description:

This classic work by the author of Ideas Have Consequences boldly examines the intellectual roots of our current cultural crisis.
JOB’s Comment:
The too exclusive focus on Ideas Have Consequences does not, in my view, do full justice to this conservative and classical idealist thinker. There is a significant development in his work, both with regard to his general philosophy and his view of rhetoric, and the resulting revised positions can be clearly seen in Visions of Order. In some respects, this book can be defended as containing deepened and more nuanced insight. Platonism has been supplemented and modified by an element of historicism.
