JOHN SENIOR AND THE RESTORATION OF REALISM
In this detailed and provocative study, Francis Bethel examines the life and thought of cultural critic, university professor, and sometime cowboy, John Senior (1923-1999). A privileged young man who studied the occult but became a leading proponent of traditional wisdom and arts (eventually converting to the Catholic Faith), Senior, unlike many of even his conservative peers, argued for something more than mere book learning. He championed the full restoration of realism, in which would be brought together the whole man senses, imagination, emotion, will, intellect, and body. Hardcover. 452 pages.
