The Hedgehog Review
Increasingly, Americans have grown wary and distrustful of their leaders, whom they perceive as arrogant, selfish, and disconnected from the concerns of real people and the best interests of the nation. What does this loss of confidence in our elites have to do with the system that selects and shapes them? Why has meritocracy itself come to be seen as a big part of the problem? And what can be done to fix a broken system? This issue also includes a symposium with a never-before-published essay by Richard Rorty and responses from three distinguished philosophers: Susan Haack, Matthew B. Crawford, and Robert B. Pippin.
