Ted V. McAllister

Presently the Edward L. Gaylord Chair of Public Policy at Pepperdine University, McAllister is an Intellectual Historian whose research interests focus on modernity and its discontents, historical consciousness, and the history and nature of American conservatism. The author of Revolt Against Modernity:  Leo Strauss, Eric Voegelin, and the Search for a Post-Liberal Order, McAllister has written and lectured on a wide range of themes from Alexis de Tocqueville and Eric Voegelin to the debate about the nature of American identity.  Currently working on a book about Walter Lippmann and co-authoring a survey of American History called The Promise and Paradox of Freedom, he will soon focus on a history of the baby-boomers.

Ted is available to speak on the following topics:

  • The Stories We Tell: How Our History Shapes our Future
  • The Problem of Emancipation: The Case of Walter Lippmann
  • The Liberal Nature of Movement Conservatism
