Video: Right Ideas: Christopher Lasch

National Association of Scholars

Christopher Lasch was a historian and social critic, the author of numerous important works, including The Culture of NarcissismThe True and Only Heaven, and The Revolt of the Elites and the Betrayal of Democracy. Defying political categories, Lasch’s insight has influenced thinkers of all political stripes, and recently his work has seen something of a revival among thinkers on the political right.

In this webinar, we discuss Lasch and his newfound relevance for conservatives and all other political thinkers.

This webinar features Blake Smith, Harper Schmidt Fellow at the University of Chicago and a writing fellow at Heterodox Academy; Geoff Shullenberger, Managing Editor at Compact Magazine; and Eric Miller, Associate Professor of History at Geneva College.

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