About the Author

Aurel Kolnai (1900-1973) was a distinguished moral and political philosopher. His books include The War Against the West (1938), Ethics, Value and Reality (1977), and The Utopian Mind and Other Papers (1995). Daniel J. Mahoney is Associate Professor of Political Science at Assumption College. He is author of The Liberal Political Science of Raymond Aron (1992) and De Gaulle: Statesmanship, Grandeur, and Modern Democracy (1996) and the editor of Modern Liberty and Its Discontents by Pierre Manent (1998).


This volume of Kolnai's essays offers a searching critique of political utopianism and casts a penetrating eye on liberal democracy's own illiberal and potentially self-destructive tendencies. * Perspectives on Political Science *
[This] book . . . gives us a clearer and more familiar insight into a thinker who was not well-known in his time but whose importance may yet prove to be significant. -- James V. Schall, S.J., Georgetown University
