Abstract
In the first part of this critical study on Herman De Dijn's Vloeibare waarden, I offer a concise presentation of the central ideas in this book against the backdrop of Zygmunt Bauman's view of late modernity. In the second part, I try to characterize De Dijn's so-called conservatism with the assistance of a few quotations from the work of Leszek Kolakowski, a Polish philosopher with whom De Dijn feels congenial. In the third part, I make two critical observations concerning De Dijn's position in his book. Finally, I make a passing remark as to the philosophical importance of what Hannah Arendt calls 'dangerous thinking'.
