About this Episode

Sullivan believes that conservatism is more a disposition than an ideology. He says the defining characteristic of the conservative is that he knows what he doesn’t know. While not denying that the truth exists, the conservative is content to say merely that his grasp on it is always provisional. He may be wrong. According to Sullivan, conservatism is an anti-ideology, a nonprogram, a way of looking at the world.
