About the Event

Watch video here.

Left-leaning criticisms of conservatism range from traditional egalitarianism (such as Marx, Rawls, or Rorty), to postmodernism (Foucault and his followers), to the purely political critiques that conservatism is no more than a cloak for racism and reaction (Nancy MacLean, Corey Robin, and Dominic Losurdo).  This lecture will take stock of these critiques and offer rebuttals.
