When Moderation Is a Virtue: A Conversation with Aurelian Craiutu

with Aurelian Craiutu

Barry Goldwater famously told the Republican National Convention in 1964 that “extremism in the pursuit of liberty is no vice and … moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” Begging to differ is Aurelian Craiutu who joins this episode to discuss his new book, Faces of Moderation, a profound study of thinkers such as Raymond Aron, Michael Oakeshott, Isaiah Berlin, and others, who defended freedom and constitutional government against ideologues of all types.
