Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

The Summer Edition of PERSPECTIVES ON POLITICAL SCIENCE out--well before summer officially begins.

There’s a PATHBREAKING symposium on the work of CHANTAL DELSOL, edited by PAUL SEATON. It includes articles by Delsol herself, Paul, Carl Eric Scott, Ivan the K, and, of course, ME.

If that weren’t enough, there’s a most judicious appraisal of biotechnology and liberal democracy by Darwinian Larry’s best student, Lauren K. Hall.

And there’s MORE, including a most penetrating review essay on Gillespie’s THE THEOLOGICAL ORIGINS OF MODERNITY by Ralph Hancock. You’ll learn that Gillespie’s thesis is actually sort of plausible, but it’s still true, as Ralph explains, that Gillespie’s "rhetorical tendency to play up the Christian dimension of modernity seems to detract from [his] more fundamental claims."

Thanks for the plug, Peter. I didn't know Lauren Hall was a student of Larry Arnhart. I've sent Delsol copies of the symposium; I'll keep you posted on her response.

All honor to Paul for putting the symposium together and for some top notch editing. Also, the new managing editor at PPS, Miriam Aronin, is a dynamo.

Paul: she is a practicing Buddhist and a Darwinian, not to mention a lapsed vegetarian.

Ivan: My rancher friends tell me that lapsed vegetarians are the best ones.
