Philosopher Scott Buchanan discusses the nature and source of revolution. When we in the West speak of revolution, we most often mean the kind symbolized by the American and French upheavals. But these were very different from the politicized peasant revolutions going on in the 1960s. Mr. Buchanan's view of revolution is of a process of education in which the revolutionaries change and learn as their actions change a situation. [ca. 1963].
