Beauty Will Save the World: Recovering the Human in an Ideological Age

Culture, Not Politics


'“[Wolfe writes] to get to the roots, the radices, of our cultural dilemma. And his hopeful answer . . . is captured in the disarming title of his new book, Beauty Will Save the World. . . . While Wolfe is partly engaged here in re-grounding the term conservatism, he is perhaps more comfortable borrowing the older notion of Christian humanism, that of Thomas More and Erasmus. . . . As Wolfe suggests, we must begin to imagine another way, one that frees us to cultivate our surroundings and truly make things new.” —American Conservative“An excellent book . . . A lengthy meditation on, and defense of, beauty as a necessary—and perhaps preeminent—transcendent for today”s culture . . . At once autobiography, cultural criticism, and a call to quietly but confidently man the easels in a world that would rather pick up a megaphone and head to the streets.” —Comment magazine '
