Liberty and equality are powerful words in American political discourse. How have these two words been interpreted throughout American history? Are liberty and equality in tension with each other, or are they compatible? This program explores three different views in American thought about the relationship between liberty and equality.
This program will be conducted as a conversation, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with Professor Alvis facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, threfore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. Participants will recieve a Letter of Attendance at the conclusion of the seminar.
