WHOLLY ORDERS

A poetic & philosophical exploration of tradition

Are you unsatisfied with (or better yet, strenuously opposed to) the pervasive contemporary secular worldview in the West, one that treats philosophy, poetry, and the Western contemplative religious tradition as being mere flights of fancy, irrelevant to the “modern world”?

Wholly Orders is a project informed by the unity in thinking within the Western philosophical and contemplative tradition, one that is grounded in the Christian faith.

The ‘wholeness’ that proceeds from a unity in thinking, as part of that tradition, is something far more rich than (and indeed, quite different in orientation from) the modern push for uniformity in thought.

Guided by the unity of faith and reason, as within the Catholic tradition, this project offers a non-ideological traditionalist conservative philosophy and cultural criticism.

“The word ‘Western’ has been taken to be a standard term of abuse by so many people in the world today, and in particular by people who don’t have the faintest idea what it means: historically, metaphysically, or poetically.”

— Sir Roger Scruton (Requiescat in pace). Final speech, September 2019
