Carl Schmitt: The Conscience of Beauty Now Available

The Foundation is pleased to announce the publication of The Conscience of Beauty, a collectionof over seventy essays by Carl Schmitt.

In these writings Schmitt has gathered and distilled the fruits of his contemplation over a long lifetime, revealing a man whose words on paper are as remarkable as his work on canvas. Schmitt offers a fresh perspective on such topics as art, culture, personality, mythology, and history, all informed by the far-reaching perspective introduced in The Vision of Beauty. Along the way he touches on more immediate concerns of the media, respectability, large families, and fatherhood with his unerring sense of irony and wry humor.
