New course on the American Revolutionary Era from Professor Gleicher

The Center is pleased to announce a new course on the Political Philosophy of the American Revolutionary Era, which will be offered for the first time during the spring 2009 semester. The course will be taught by Professor Jules Gleicher and will cover the era of the American Founding (1776-1800), perhaps the most philosophic period in our history. The course will examine texts by John Locke, Baron Montesquieu, Thomas Paine, the Declaration of Independence, and the writings of Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. See the Political Philosophy of the American Revolutionary Era course flyer (PDF) and view Professor Gleicher’s brief video introduction to the course below.

    To Whom it May Concern,

    The info was great, except for one “integral” mistake. The man being interviewed mentioned the moral virtue of John Adams, but did not mention why he had these virtues.

    I will tell you why: John Adams was a devout Christian man. The Bible was “the” reference that all of the Founders lived their lives according to. If you go to the website I listed, you will understand.

    Also, if you truly want a revelation of the Founding era, invite David Barton to speak and do and interview. He can tell you why the Founding era was the “greatest generation.”

    Thank you.
