  8. Blue Collar Intellectuals

    Blue Collar Intellectuals

    By Daniel J. Flynn

    Regular Price: $27.95

    Special Price $22.36

    “This book is not only an exciting story; it also corrects a terrible cultural mistake—the mistake of treating high culture, Great Books, and other canon-making visions of tradition as exploitative and spurious. Flynn’s profiles mark a vital alternative to the complacent relativism of contemporary cultural stewards.”
    Mark Bauerlein, bestselling author of The Dumbest Generation

    Guiding us through a world now vanished, Daniel J. Flynn causes us to take a hard look at the nostrums of our digital age.

    “Back in the middle decades of the twentieth century, millions of Americans supped at the table of high culture, learning history, philosophy, and economics from intellectual entrepreneurs like Will and Ariel Durant, Mortimer Adler, and Eric Hoffer. Daniel Flynn tells their story in Blue Collar Intellectuals—and tells us why we miss them today.”
    Michael Barone, senior political analyst at the Washington Examiner, coauthor of The Almanac of American Politics
