Synopsis
Originally published in 1948, at the height of post-World War II optimism and confidence in collective security, Ideas Have Consequences uses "words hard as cannonballs" to present an unsparing diagnosis of the ills of the modern age. Widely read and debated at the time of its first publication,the book is now seen asone of the foundational texts of the modern conservative movement. In its pages, Richard M. Weaver argues that the decline of Western civilization resulted from the rising acceptance of relativism over absolute reality. In spite of increased knowledge, this retreat from the realist intellectual tradition has weakened the Western capacity to reason, with catastrophic consequences for social order and individual rights. But Weaver also offers a realistic remedy. These difficulties are the product not of necessity, but of intelligent choice. And, today, as decades ago, the remedy lies in the renewed acceptance of absolute reality and the recognition that ideas--like actions--have consequences. This expanded edition of the classic work contains a foreword by New Criterion editor Roger Kimball that offers insight into the rich intellectual and historical contexts of Weaver and his work and an afterword by Ted J. Smith III that relates the remarkable story of the book's writing and publication.

Reviews
"A profound diagnosis of the sickness of our culture."

"Brilliantly written, daring, and radical. . . . it will shock, and philosophical shock is the beginning of wisdom."

"Richard M. Weaver's book is important; his explanation of the breakdown of modern man is the best in years."

"This deeply prophetic book not only launched the renaissance of philosophical conservatism in this country, but in the process gave us an armory of insights into the diseases besetting the national community that is as timely today as when it first appeared. Ideas Have Consequences is one of the few authentic classics in the American political tradition."

Condition Notes:

NOTE: The cover art pictured may NOT be the same as the cover art on the item we have. Publishers reuse the same ISBN number for different printings of the same item and when we input this ISBN into eBay product details page it automatically brings up the most recent cover photo. We cannot delete only the image from the product details so we're kind of stuck with it. If you want to ensure you receive a specific cover of this item, please message us to ask.

About Books for America

Please check back often - We are listing items as quickly as possible! We are a nationally recognized charity. We describe items as best we can - we would rather receive a lower price by pointing out every flaw than incorrectly describe an item just to obtain a higher selling price.

Charity Sales
100% of the net proceeds support Books For America - we are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Washington, DC. Books for America distributes books and more to organizations in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States serving disadvantaged communities and people. Recipients of donated books and other items include schools, assisted living communities for seniors, adult literacy programs, veterans’ hospitals, youth centers, women's shelters, prisons, hospices, and more.

Donate books, CDs, DVDs, laptops, cellphones, and more!
We obtain books and more through donation drives in communities like yours. We occasionally obtain items that would be of more value to consumers than to our grant recipients and take a quantity of donated items and sell them on eBay - proceeds from these sales fund our literacy and educational efforts.

Customer Service
Books for America Customer Service is normally available during regular business hours from our Virginia office. We are not normally open on weekends or holidays. While you may send us a customer service request at any time, please do not expect any action to be taken on it outside our normal business hours. We generally respond to messages within 1-2 business days.

We send shipment confirmations, delivery confirmation numbers, and miscellaneous support communications by conventional e-mail. These notices may NOT appear in your eBay message queue. Be sure to check your registered e-mail address for the most recent information regarding your shipment.

We will send you an e-mail if we discover a problem with your order. We will give you two (2) business days to respond to that e-mail with instructions on how you want us to proceed. If we do not receive those instructions within that time, we will request cancellation from eBay for your protection.

IMPORTANT: Please do not include any special requests in the PayPal information box when you are submitting payment, we will not see this information. If you have any special requests for the item, please send us a message through the eBay messaging service immediately after placing your order. Thanks in advance!
