One can also read this volume as an erudite commentary upon the destructiveness of opposing forces, such as progressivism, utilitarianism, and scientism.
It is tragic that the current political science graduate has scarcely heard of Kirk and tends to assume the conservative movement to be a retrograde force identified primarily with Barry Goldwater.
Kirk's book is a masterpiece that belongs next to Richard Weaver's Ideas Have Consequences. Both should be staples in college and university curricula. This is probably asking too much, however, of moribund academic institutions in which only the left wing of politics is allowed a voice.
