The article conducts a detailed textual analysis of the arguments raised in Thomas Rourke's recent book, A Conscience as Large as the World: Yves R. Rourke contends that Michael Novak, Richard John Neuhaus and George Weigel part company with the Catholic tradition by defending liberalism. Rourke seeks to demonstrate this through a comprehensive comparison of the neoconservative's corpus with the thought of Yves Simon

Thomas R.

Among the most influential and controversial developments in twentieth-century American social thought has been the rise of the Catholic neoconservatives, particularly Michael Novak, Richard John Neuhaus, and George Weigel. This important book presents a systematic critique of Catholic neoconservatism using the work of Yves Simon as a theoretical and practical lens of analysis. Rourke demonstrates how Simon, whose works represent the Aristotelian-Thomistic roots of Catholic social thought, and the Catholic neoconservatives address many of the same issues, including democratic government, freedom, practical wisdom, wealth, work, culture, and virtue. Rourke argues, however, that the neoconservative approach to these concepts lacks essential elements of the Thomist tradition, fails to overcome the inadequacies of liberalism and therefore is an inadequate expression of Catholic social thought for our time. Invaluable for students and scholars of political science and religion.
