Orestes A Brownson: American Religious Weathervane

Orestes Augustus Brownson (1803-1876) was a philosopher, essayist, and minister whose broad-ranging ideas both reflected and influenced the social and religious mores of his day. This superb biography by Patrick Carey provides a thorough, incisive account of Brownson’s shifting intellectual and religious life within the context of American cultural history. Based on a close reading of Brownson’s diary notebooks, letters, essays, and books, this biography chronicles the course of Brownson’s eventful life, particularly his restless search for a balance between freedom and communion in his relations with God, nature, and the human community.
