I recently published two works on long-time hobby horses of mine, in part drawing from my birthday lectures.
In the San Antonio Review, I have a look at the newest biography of Henry Adams, one of the premier American intellectuals of the late nineteenth/early twentieth centuries. I wrote about Henry Adams way back in 2012 for the first in my current series of birthday lectures. The biography was pretty good.
Over at Full Stop, I have a longer piece on Traditionalism and the far right, using a journalistic work on the subject as a springboard. I wrote about far-right Traditionalism and its, er, unique sense of history for my 2018 birthday lecture. If you’re interested in the subject or just in the history of weird ideas in general, both pieces and the book I review are worth checking out.
