Joseph T. Stuart, PhD, discusses his most recent book, Christopher Dawson: A Cultural Mind in the Age of the Great War (CUA Press), endorsed by the late Dr. Don Briel, George Weigel, and Michael Burleigh. Listen to Stuart’s wide-ranging conversation with Dr. David Tamisiea about the English historian of culture Christopher Dawson (1889-1970), the Great War as the “original sin” of the 20th century, mass civilization, and Dawson’s relationship to both John Henry Newman and the Catholic Studies project.
