Ideas are not enough. Teaching in a history department these past couple years has convinced me, along with a few of my history colleagues, that ideas are often not the driving force behind great changes in society and world events. Philosophers, theologians, and intellectuals of all sorts often act like the only thing that matters are ideas. You get the ideas right and then you change the world.
