Thomas More College Press, 1988 - 472 pagina's

In this detailed and provocative study, Francis Bethel examines the life and thought of highly influential cultural critic, university professor, and sometime cowboy, John Senior (1923-1999). A former favored student in the 1940s of Columbia professor and literary critic Mark Van Doren, Senior would later author works of cultural criticism, including the controversial The Death of Christian Culture. Yet far greater was Senior's influence as a teacher and mentor in the Pearson Integrated Humanities Program at the University of Kansas. Senior championed the full "restoration of realism," in which would be brought together the whole man-senses, imagination, emotion, will, intellect, and body. This biography is only one ever written on this important cultural figure of twentieth-century and is therefore essential reading.
