Niebuhr was the philosopher most often quoted in the United States in the middle third of the twentieth century, becoming the leading critic of modern American thought in its shift from accepted Christian values toward more liberal and pragmatic outlooks. His Moral Man and Immoral Society , 2 an exposure of the brutality pervading modern capitalist and industrialist society, aroused great interest immediately on publication.

Martin Luther King said that Niebuhr had a greater influence on him than Gandhi.
