Read a fair portion of this for O'Donovan's class. Fascinating text, in that it tries to be all systematic and rational like Kant, but is shot through with irreconcilable tensions between the liberal political model that Rosmini is attracted by and the traditional one that he still wants to retain. Basically the tensions revolve around the great modern question--does the social exist for the sake of the individual or does the individual exist for the sake of the social?
