Hit Me With Your Best Shot: The Top Attacks on Conservatism
Time & Location
About the Event
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.
