Is the Enlightenment Working? Considerations from Alexis de Tocqueville" by Brian Jones
In light of recent defenses (e.g. Steven Pinker's "Enlightenment Now!", Jonah Goldberg's "Suicide of the West") and critiques (Patrick Deneen's "Why Liberalism Failed") of enlightenment liberalism, Mr. Jones argues the ultimate fruit of enlightenment liberalism has been the atomization society, leading to a sense of isolation and meaninglessness.
Mr. Jones has been published in New Blackfriars, Crisis, Catholic World Report, HPR, and Catholic Social Science Review.
