Joy Pullmann, managing editor at The Federalist, interviewed professor and author Dr. Anthony Esolen on the Federalist Radio Hour. Esolen discusses his latest book, “Out of the Ashes: Rebuilding American Culture” and how we can save art, beauty, music from the crumbling institutions of Western civilization and the sexual revolution.
Dr. Esolen also shared the story of a campus outrage against him at Providence College where he is a literature professor. “I was the object of a month or two of campus-wide scorn,” he said. “All is not lost here but the fight is going to be bitter and bloody.”
Pullmann and Esolen discussed some practical ways parents and children can restore culture and encounter the natural world. “We need the kids out doing wholesome play without the parents’ direction,” he said.
