AFA’s July Book Discussion Group

Thomas Sowell’s
 

A Conflict of Visions:
Ideological Origins of Political Struggles

 

Many years ago, when I found, much to my horror, that I seemed to be a conservative, this is the book that helped me not only accept that discovery, but in fact embrace it wholeheartedly.  Thomas Sowell is one of the most brilliant thinkers of our age, and I was overjoyed to find myself on the side of thinking this profound and analyses so insightful.  From the Amazon description:

Thomas Sowell’s classic analysis of the opposing visions behind today’s ethical and ideological disputes

Controversies in politics arise from many sources, but the conflicts that endure for generations or centuries show a remarkably consistent pattern. This revised edition of a classic analyzes the centuries-long debates about the nature of reason, justice, equality, and power. It distinguishes between those with the “constrained” vision, which sees human nature as enduring and self-centered, and the “unconstrained” vision, in which human nature is malleable and perfectible. A Conflict of Visions offers a compelling case that these opposing visions are behind the ethical and ideological disputes of yesterday and today.

For more information about the book, you can watch Peter Robinson’s conversation with Thomas Sowell on A Conflict of Visions or read this AEI review here.  

Please note that this is an INFORMAL discussion group and unfortunately Dr. Sowell will NOT be present, much as we’d like him to be.

We’ll get together at the outside bar area of the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel on Thursday, July 25th at 7 PM.    And even if you haven’t had the chance to read or finish the book, join us anyway for what is sure to be a fun and informative evening!

We hope to see you there!

With your support, we are able to host the exceptional and world-class events that are our hallmark, and that are fundamental to the preservation of Western Civilization.  As always, it sounds hyperbolic… but as events show us day after day, it’s not. 

 

When the media, academia and the vast majority of cultural influences do their utmost to create a “reality” that is devoid of, and in fact, in total opposition to the truth, it falls to organizations such as this one to disseminate and support, in every way possible, the actual truth.  Only by shining the light of truth do we stand a chance against the juggernaut of misinformation, and only with your support can we do so.
