If you feel you’re at a place where you’d like to truly become part of this discussion you’re ready for our Ideas That Change The World Seminar.
Liberty & Society
June 26-29 ● Bryn Mawr College, Philadelphia, PA area
In the course of human events, no other idea has affected humankind as much as the notions of liberty and a free society. If you feel you’re ready to really dig into some truly earth-altering thinking, you’re ready for the Liberty & Society Seminar: Ideas That Change the World.
This seminar progresses beyond the basics of free markets to explore more sophisticated arguments for liberty. Here, lectures on Hayek, Nozick, Von Mises, Smith and others will provide the framework for wrestling with larger issues regarding the nature of social order, self-perpetuating government interventions, the Great Depression, and other historical episodes.
Plus there will be a career panel to discuss job possibilities in the libertarian movement.
In the end, you will see how applying the philosophy of liberty to enduring social and political questions (often taking their discussions late into the night) helps address questions such as: “How do incentives shape human actions and decisions?”, “Should government have a monopoly on force?”, “Can social harmony emerge spontaneously?” and others. In addition, you’ll learn to tie core, multi-disciplinary concepts together into coherent arguments.
