A Twentieth-Century Concept of "Order"

To explore the rise and fall, in the first half of the 20th century, of the term "order" as the key word of a cultural-religious-critique on the condition of the modern world. To speculate on why this concept was received as uncritically as it was, and why, particularly in America, the term assumed its high status with nevertheless a minimum of denotive clarity. Its ultimate apotheosis was in the work of the Southern agrarians.
