Editorial Reviews


A provocatively diverse collection of deeply thoughtful responses to the twin crises of our disintegrating public philosophy and our intellectually floundering political science. Walter Lippman's famous warning meditation is updated, vindicated, and made the starting point for instructive and potentially galvanizing recommendations for a wholesale redesign of political science education and research agendas. (Thomas L. Pangle, Professor and author, Ennobling of Democracy DIS .40)

E. Robert Statham Jr has brought together a diverse and interesting array of perspectives on the relation between the current 'crisis of public philosophy' and the discipline of political science. Commentators who question contemporary political 'science' from the 'outsider' perspective of classical political philosophy or natural law rub shoulders with others who emphasize, in different ways, the failure of political scientists to make an effective contribution to the renewal of public philosophy. Anyone who wishes to reflect seriously on this ongoing 'crisis' needs to confront the questions raised so well in this volume. (Christopher Wolfe, Marquette University)
