Product description

Review

A profound diagnosis of the sickness of our culture.
--Reinhold Niebuhr"

Brilliantly written, daring, and radical. . . . it will shock, and philosophical shock is the beginning of wisdom.
--Paul Tillich"

Richard M. Weaver s book is important; his explanation of the breakdown of modern man is the best in years.
--John Crowe Ransom"

This deeply prophetic book not only launched the renaissance of philosophical conservatism in this country, but in the process gave us an armory of insights into the diseases besetting the national community that is as timely today as when it first appeared. Ideas Have Consequences is one of the few authentic classics in the American political tradition.
--Robert Nisbet"
