Topic - Raymond Aron
It would be fair to say of Daniel J. Mahoney that a political scientist with his acute sense of analytical balance should be better known than he is. But then you get to thinking - balance? That's not what we're about in the modern world, is it? We're about pushing ideas - democracy, say - as far as they can be pushed until, well, we won't know until we get there, will we?
As modern philosophers go, Mr. Mahoney particularly likes and respects the late Aron - about whom he wrote an earlier book.
