We are thrilled to announce that our friend Professor John Tomasi will be the discussion leader for our upcoming Liberty Fund Symposium on The Institutions of Liberty. Dr. Tomasi is a professor of political philosophy at Brown University and director of the Political Theory Project. He is also the author of the new book Free Market Fairness, which argues that libertarians can and should care about social justice. His theory of free market fairness is committed to both limited government and the material betterment of the poor.
The SFL & Liberty Fund Symposia are a fantastic opportunity for student interested in a deeper understanding of the ideas of a free society. These three-day events are built around a Socratic discussion of the topic between fifteen student participants and an academic discussion leader. Over the past fifty years scores of aspiring intellectuals have attended Liberty Fund events to discuss and debate the ideas of liberty with their brightest peers. They have been described as the most intellectually challenging events our students have ever participated in.
