I must disagree about the Voguish Depressive, in the healthy range, as the prototype of the " Conservative Mind "! I believe that Millon's defination of Voguishness shows contrarianism, with elements of rebellion. As I have suggested before, your defination of the Ansir Philosopher could easily come from a Serious Style person ( Serious Style strongest ) who has styles which make them more aggressive and willing to buck the system. Indeed, Millon says that the Voguish Depressive has " histrionic & narcissistic faetures "..... That could easily lead to playing to the auidence, and rebellion against things that box you, and stop you from doing what you want to do! Rich

But he would regard today’s world in much the same way he regards, in the first chapter, the living Irish orators in Burke’s birthplace of Dublin proclaiming through amplifiers their success in increasing widows’ pensions. He would sadly shake his head and deliver the epitaph of the West, proclaiming, as Burke once did, “What shadows we are, and what shadows we pursue!”
