About the Event
Politics have become an area of confusion, conflict, and deadlock. This summer, we will get past the muddle and initiate reasoned, productive, real political conversation by returning to first principles. What is the purpose of the state? What does it mean to have a just society? Guided by our study of Plato, Aristotle, and excerpts from various political philosophers, we will explore the moral and philosophical foundations of human political communities.
Regular camp fee is $400. The application fee covers course materials and lunch for the duration of the camp. There is a 20% discount for signups before April 30, 2021. Payment will be accepted upon acceptance to the camp.
