A thinker whose ideas on Leadership are being understood better now:

"My task is to review Irving Babbitt’s delightfully ponderous Democracy and Leadership, published a century ago this year, and to assess its relevance to present circumstances. Despite the proliferation of degrees in leadership and schools of leadership, there’s no consensus regarding what leadership is or how to achieve it.
Babbitt had an idea involving a few key concepts: naturalism, imagination, standards, progress, and humility. One must understand Babbitt’s interpretation of these to appreciate his outlook on democracy and leadership."
