To celebrate The Review of Politics’s 80th birthday, we are making the very first article in the very first issue available for free until March 31, 2019.
The article on Page 1 of Volume 1, Issue 1 in 1939 was by Jacques Maritain and entitled "Integral Humanism and the Crisis of Modern Times”.
It is available here: https://doi.org/10.1017/S0034670500000188
We have also asked Fred Dallmayr, one of the journal’s editorial board members, to provide a reflection on Maritain’s article.
Dallmayr’s response titled "Continuity and Change: Honoring Jacques Maritain" is available here:
