Register for "The Constitution and Limited Government"

November 9, 2022, 8:30 AM ET - 2:15 PM ET | Hosted by: Freedoms Foundations at Valley Forge (Phoenixville, PA) | Discussion Leader: Dr. Jason Stevens

This seminar will examine how the Constitution seeks to create a limited government, and how that government is supposed to function within defined restraints. The complexity of defining such constraints will be a special focus of the readings and discussions, with an emphasis on the ideas described in specific documents of the Founding, and how ideas put into action through the government those documents instituted.

This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. All attendees will receive a Letter of Attendance at the end of the seminar.


Teaching American History
"It gave me a better understanding of the Founders’ views. They saw that restricting religious liberty is not only wrong; it leads to animosity within society. This year, I will begin both my government class and my class on “Law and Modern Society” with George Washington’s Letter to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport." — Sean B.
