The Irving Babbitt Project

As we near the end of 2008, I remember that this year marked the 100th anniversary of the publication of Irving Babbitt’s seminal polemic, Literature and the American College

A few years ago, the National Humanities Institute launched “The Irving Babbitt Project.”  Their website hasn’t been updated in a while, but it continues to host several interesting articles.

    Can one even imagine the possibilities if the world was focused of peaceful philosophies instead of waging wars?

    Hear, hear. Babbitt’s ideas about peace interest me.

    As much as I love peace, I don’t think it’s possible on a large scale within the human race. Which begs the question: “What is the threshold of peace?”
