Matteo Bortolini’s The Life of Robert Bellah: A Roundtable

Rubén Flores, University College, Dublin, Ireland

Robert Bellah is without a doubt one of the giants of 20th and early 21st century social research. This roundtable brings together a wonderful array of scholars from multiple disciplinary backgrounds in order to discuss a book devoted to his life and work, Matteo Bortolini’s A Joyfully Serious Man (Princeton University Press, 2021). It is our hope that this discussion will encourage readers to further explore and engage with Bellah’s rich oeuvre.
