Connor Ewing is to Humane Pursuits what Artificial Reason was to Sir Coke’s notion of law: the accretion of insight, the knowledge of the ages—what Russell Kirk, in his characteristically lapidary way, termed the wisdom of the species. It thus follows that the quality of his work is wholly dependent on the other writers. Accordingly all errors, muddled arguments, and tired cliches should be attributed to them, with each receiving an equal portion of the blame.
A graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Connor’s subsequent experience has been diverse. He has a master’s degree in constitutional theory from the University of Chicago; and has worked in the Wisconsin legislature, in the nonprofit sector, and for the Ethics and Public Policy Center and the Institute for Religion and Democracy.
