Norman Jacobson's ideas continue to echo in my work in many ways, and he taught me that, of all things, political theory is not immune from having to take account of itself. Although some may not think my disagreements with Sheldon Wolin are negligible, it should be obvious that I have rotated around his intellectual compass. since 1964, Paul Kress and I have been engaged in a constant conversation, and Gene Poschman has been a source of insight since the day he came upon me lost in the stacks looking for something called the Congressional Record.

Liberalism was construed in one way or another as decadent, as the historical threshold of fascism and nazism, and the facade of socially repressive forces. Science, scientific philosophy, and technology were conceived in similar manner, and social science was often understood as their most heinous manifestation.
