Mark T. Mitchell
Mark T. Mitchell teaches political theory at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, VA. He is the author Michael Polanyi: The Art of Knowing and The Politics of Gratitude: Scale, Place, and Community in a Global Age (Potomac Books, 2012). He is co-editor of another book titled, The Humane Vision of Wendell Berry. Currently he is writing a book on private property. In 2008-9, while on sabbatical at Princeton University, he and Jeremy Beer hatched a plan to start a website dedicated to political decentralism, economic localism, and cultural regionalism. A group of like-minded people quickly formed around these ideas, and in March 2009, FPR was launched. Although he was raised in Montana and still occasionally longs for the west, he lives in Virginia with his wife, three sons and one daughter where they are in the process of turning a few acres into a small farm.


  1. Been looking forward to this one since it was first announced. It’ll be on my Christmas list for sure.

    Speaking of the book, you guys ought to try and get contributor Tony Esolen to post something here occasionally. Much of his stuff would fit right in, and he’s always worth reading.

  2. Good to know. I had tried to grab a copy months ago and was informed publication was delayed. Looks like a good read.
