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.

This talk was given at the Center for Thomistic Studies on May 4, 2018.

"Sophisticated Alienation" by Dr. Steven Jensen

Dr. Steven Jensen is a Professor of Philosophy at the University of St. Thomas, Houston and the chair of the Center for Thomistic Studies. In his paper, titled "Sophisticated Alienation," Dr. Jensen provides a critique of consequentialism in relation to recent attempts by consequentialist philosophers to overcome the problem of alienation (the objection that consequentialist focus on maximizing the agent-neutral good destroys one's personal connections to anyone you may try to help.)
