Video: Right Ideas: Alasdair MacIntyre

National Association of Scholars

Alasdair MacIntyre is one of the most influential philosophers of the late last half century. His book After Virtue presents a groundbreaking critique of modern moral theory, and it provides prescient insight into the nature of our contemporary political discourse.

Although he denounces conservatives—and has his roots in the new left tradition—many conservatives have nonetheless learned and borrowed from MacIntyre’s critique of contemporary moral and political thought.

In this “Right Ideas” webinar, we discuss MacIntyre’s thought and contemporary relevance. The webinar features Nathan Pinkoski, Research Fellow and Director of Academic Programs at the Zephyr Institute, and RJ Snell, Editor-in-Chief of Public Discourse and Director of Academic Programs at the Witherspoon Institute.

The discussion is moderated by John Sailer, Research Fellow at the National Association of Scholars.
