Contemporary Thinkers is an online resource aimed at bringing the work of outstanding modern scholars of politics, philosophy, economics, and government to students and the general public. Its companion project, Great Thinkers, is devoted to the most consequential political thinkers from antiquity through the nineteenth century. Contemporary Thinkers spans the last century—from John Maynard Keynes, and Friedrich Hayek in the 1930s and 1940s, through Leo Strauss, Hannah Arendt, Irving Kristol, and Raymond Aron in the mid and late century, to James Q. Wilson, Tom Wolfe, and Harvey Mansfield in more recent years.
Contemporary Thinkers currently features thirty-three sites devoted to individual thinkers, with many more in development or under consideration. We warmly welcome readers’ reactions and suggestions regarding our current sites and new additions.
