Most widely held works by Michael Novak
The spirit of democratic capitalism by Michael Novak ( Book )
30 editions published between 1978 and 1991 in 4 languages and held by 1,611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this groundbreaking book, Michael Novak offers one of the most significant and refreshing appraisals of capitalism in recent times. A leading neo-conservative thinker, Novak challenges the almost universal assumption that capitalism, because of the prosperity it brings, is without the moral and spiritual underpinnings of socialism. Novak argues convincingly that, in fact, by virtue of its distinctive spirit, democratic capitalism is not only pragmatically superior but morally more sound than any other system of political economy known to man. That spirit, says Novak, consists of a novel trinity: a political democracy, a market incentive economy, and a liberal, pluralistic culture. Based on respect for individual freedom, it provides a broader vision of human possibility than that offered by any other societal alternative

The experience of nothingness by Michael Novak ( Book )
10 editions published between 1970 and 1998 in English and held by 1,346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this work, the author has two objectives. First, he shows the paths by which the experience of nothingness is becoming common among all those who live in free societies. Second, he details the various experiences that lead to the nothingness point of view. Most discussions of these matters have been so implicated in the European experience that the term "nihilism" has a European ring. This author, however, articulates this experience of formlessness in an American context

Business as a calling : work and the examined life by Michael Novak ( Book )
9 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A larger proportion than ever before of the world's Christians, Jews, and other peoples of faith are spending their working lives in business. Business is a profession worthy of a person's highest ideals and aspirations, fraught with moral possibilities both of great good and of great evil. Novak takes on agonizing problems, such as downsizing, the tradeoffs that must sometimes be faced between profits and human rights, and the pitfalls of philanthropy. He also examines the daily questions of how an honest day's work contributes to the good of many people, both close at hand and far away. Our work connects us with one another. It also makes possible the universal advance out of poverty, and it is an essential prerequisite of democracy and the institutions of civil society."--BOOK JACKET
