Richard Weaver on War and Stephen Smith on Liberalism in ANAMNESIS.By Peter Daniel Haworth for FRONT PORCH REPUBLIC
FPR readers will be interested in two new essays in ANAMNESIS. The first, by Professor Jay Langdale, is a fascinating examination of Richard Weaver’s analysis of pathologies related to modern war: “’One more chance for the conservative solution’: Richard Weaver’s Traditionalist Conservative Critique of Modern Warfare.” The second essay, “The Contraception Mandate and Secular Discourse,” is by the Front Porch’s own, Professor R.J. Snell. This is a book review of Stephen D. Smith’s The Disenchantment of Secular Discourse. By way of examining Smith, Snell elucidates some of the significant challenges that modern liberalism poses for religion and traditionalism.
