The New Class Conflict
by Joel Kotkin

Now available!
In ways not seen since the Gilded Age of the late nineteenth century, America is becoming a nation of increasingly sharply divided classes. Joel Kotkin’s The New Class Conflict shows how the rise of a high-tech oligarchy, along with academia, the media, and the government bureaucracy, is creating a new class order, largely at the expense of the middle class.

Are We Postsecular?

Critical theory inherited classical accounts of social change that linked modernization processes to secularization, yet these accounts have come under considerable pressure from a variety of directions. This issue of Telos asks about the end of the secularization thesis—“Are we postsecular?”—not only by examining contemporary philosophical accounts of religion but also by broadening the framework to include analyses of aspects of religion and politics in India.

The Forest Passage
by Ernst Jünger

Now available!
Ernst Jünger’s The Forest Passage explores the possibility of resistance: how the independent thinker can withstand and oppose the power of the omnipresent state. No matter how extensive the technologies of surveillance become, the forest can shelter the rebel, and the rebel can strike back against tyranny. Jünger’s manifesto is a defense of freedom against the pressure to conform to political manipulation and artificial consensus.
