- Tuesday, February 26th, 2013 - MAC - The Politics of Freedom
Please join us for a debate on "The Politics of Freedom" featuring Professor Corey Robin and Professor Mark Blitz. What is freedom? What political, moral, economic, and social conditions are necessary for freedom to be achieved? In order to help us answer these questions, we will be joined by two scholars who have offered important responses from different sides of the political spectrum. Corey Robin teaches political science at Brooklyn College and the CUNY Graduate Center. He is the author of "The Reactionary Mind: Conservatism from Edmund Burke to Sarah Palin" and "Fear: The History of a Political Idea." His articles have appeared in the New York Times, Harper's, the London Review of Books, and elsewhere. He is currently working on a book about the political theory of the free market. Mark Blitz is the Fletcher Jones professor of political philosophy at Claremont McKenna College, and a fellow of the Claremont Institute. He is the author of "Conserving Liberty" (Hoover Institution Press), "Plato's Political Philosophy" (Johns Hopkins University Press), "Duty Bound: Responsibility and American Public Life" (Rowman & Littlefield), and "Heidegger's Being and Time and the Possibility of Political Philosophy" (Cornell University Press), and coeditor, along with William Kristol, of "Educating the Prince: Essays in Honor of Harvey Mansfield" (Rowman & Littlefield).
