TED V. MCALLISTER, 2012-13 Visiting Fellow, holds the Edward L. Gaylord Chair of Public Policy at Pepperdine University. He previously taught history at Hillsdale College and Vanderbilt University. He focuses his research on the history of American Conservatism, on the development of modernity and it critics, and on the importance of historical consciousness for social, political, and moral order. He authored Revolt Against Modernity: Leo Strauss, Eric Voegelin and the Search for a Post-Liberal Order and has published numerous essays on the history and philosophy of American Conservatism.

Lippmann's career was oriented around the problem of modern liberation from tradition and inherited forms of authority. Because people cannot live well without some established form of authority, Lippmann's constant engagement with modernity in its many forms offers a running commentary on the problem of moral authority in the modern world.
