Episode 87: Understanding Modern Political Ideas
We discuss Dr. Smith’s new book!
In Understanding Modern Political Ideas, Dr. Benjamin Smith defines and critically evaluates the major political ideologies of the modern period in the light of classical political thought. Drawing on the insights of Thomas Aquinas, Aristotle, Plato, and others, Smith highlights the failures and shortcomings of modern political thought, including the pretensions and fallacies of progressivism, Marxism, and neo-Marxism. In contrast to these ideologies, Smith develops an alternative approach that emphasizes the common good, local community, and personal virtue. Understanding Modern Political Ideas presents a vision of politics rooted in a classical and Christian understanding of the human person.
