Harry V. Jaffa: An Inconvenient Thinker by Ken Masugi

Ken Masugi, Library of Law & Liberty, January 15, 2015.


Harry V. Jaffa, who died January 10, at 96, may well be American conservatism’s most consequential thinker, for having attempted to re-found conservatism on the basis of its most philosophic principles and most revered figures. He was also one of the most dismissed, berated, and scorned of scholars, earning derision from former friends and those who knew him only from his writing, much of which had become acerbic.
