Advanced Course on ‘The Relevance of the Federalist Papers Today’

In 2015, renowned progressive legal scholar Sanford Levinson published a book, entitled An Argument Open to All. Reading the Federalist in the 21st Century. In this lecture, we will look at some of Levinson’s findings regarding ‘the most important work in political science ever written in the United States’, and also ask ourselves the question: where does he go wrong?

I will be teaching the course as part of Acton University 2018, 19-22 June, Grand Rapids, MI.
