Biografia breu
Russell Kirk was one of the founders of the post-World War II conservative movement. His influence began with the publication of his book The Conservative Mind which traced the intellectual roots of conservatism from Edmund Burke to T. S. Eliot.

He was a college professor, a visiting professor and lecturer at many colleges and universities, co-founder and editor of National Review (with William F. Buckley, Jr.), founder and editor of Modern Age, editor of The University Bookman, and founder and editor of a series of books called The Library of Conservative Thought. He wrote biography, intellectual history, cultural criticism, social criticism, literary criticism, political commentary, a syndicated column, and award-winning ghost stories and novels. His prose style has often been praised across the political spectrum.

With his wife Annette and his four daughters, his ancestral home, Piety Hill in rural Mecosta, Michigan (population about 500) became a haven for students, professors, scholars, lost souls, transients and others whom Kirk called refugees from progress. He spent much of his time at home with his family, writing, reading, going on long walks, planting trees, and entertaining visitors.



O livro A Mentalidade Conservadora, de Russell Kirk, é uma das maiores contribuições intelectuais ao conservadorismo no século XX, sendo considerado um clássico duradouro do pensamento político. É uma obra brilhante em todos os aspectos, desde sua concepção até a escolha das figuras mais significativas que representam a evolução histórica do conservadorismo. De Edmund Burke a T. S. Eliot, passando por outros importantes representantes dessa corrente doutrinária, é traçada uma análise que abrange quase dois séculos de tradição intelectual. A importância deste trabalho não se limita ao campo teórico, visto que lançou as bases do moderno movimento conservador nos Estados Unidos. Além de manter o prefácio do editor norte-americano Henry Regnery, a luxuosa edição – com capa dura revestida em tecido –, inclui um estudo introdutório e um posfácio escritos por Alex Catharino.… (més)

This is a valuable anthology of essays and selections on the idea of conservatism in political thought. Ranging from Burke to Nisbet, there are selections from a wide variety of thinkers including philosophers, politicians, literary authors, and more. With a valuable introduction by Russel Kirk and a useful bibliography for further reading this collection provides a valuable adjunct to Kirk's own book, The Conservative Mind.
jwhenderson | Oct 26, 2022 |
Kirk's collection of essays is justly regarded as a touchstone of modern conservative thought. The authors, poets and political thinkers he has selected range from the well known to many who are forgotten today – including some less-than-obvious 'conservatives'. I was particularly intrigued by the American thinkers who, to me, are less familiar than their British and Irish counterparts. The Conservative Mind is one of those books that generates a long reading list, and thankfully many of the works it cites are available as public domain editions online. One caveat to the contemporary reader: although the current edition was 'revised' in the 1980s, the changes are very slight, and most of the analysis ends with the 1950s (this is not a complaint, simply an observation).… (més)

The Conservative Mind by Russell Kirk is arguably one of the greatest contributions to twentieth-century American Conservatism. Brilliant in every respect, from its conception to its choice of significant figures representing the history of intellectual conservatism, The Conservative Mind by Russell Kirk launched the modern American Conservative Movement. A must-read.

''[It] is inconceivable even to imagine, let alone hope for, a dominant conservative movement in America without [Kirk's] labor.'' --William F. Buckley, Jr.

''Kirk is assured a place of prominence in the intellectual histories for helping to define the ethical basis of conservatism. He has tried to pull conservatism away from the utilitarian premises of liberalism, toward which conservatism often veers, toward a philosophy rooted in ethics and culture.'' --Wall Street Journal
