Postmodern Conservatism

Reflections on politics, culture, and education.

Postmodern conservatism is nothing but 21st century realism. As Walker Percy and Alexandre Solzhenitsyn explained, the genuinely postmodern challenge is to integrate what’s true about premodern, or classical, and Christian thought with what’s true about modern thought, including the modern view of freedom and the achievements of modern technology. It’s also, as Percy put it, to put back together what’s true about Anglo-American empiricism and European existentialism with the Christian discovery that logos is irreducibly personal in mind. We postmodern conservatives are fearless in our determination to have opinions about anything and everything, from politics to popular culture to both theoretical and popularized science to philosophy, literature, and theology.
