Nisbet at 100

A century ago today, Robert A. Nisbet was born.

Brad Lowell Stone: Robert Nisbet

A quote:
Other and more powerful forms of association have existed, but the major moral and psychological influences on the individual’s life have emanated from the family and local community and the church. Within such groups have been engendered the primary types of identification: affection, friendship, prestige, recognition. And within them also have been engendered or intensified the principal incentives of work, love, prayer, and devotion to freedom and order.
