Ideas of Liberty in Modern Philosophy: New Spring 2012 Course

Monday, November 7th, 2011

CEE Professor Shawn Klein has a new course for Spring 2012: Ideas of Liberty in Modern Philosophy. Our ideas about liberty and individual freedom have their roots in the thinkers of the 17th and 18th centuries. Students will explore these ideas in the influential works of Hobbes, Locke, Smith, Burke, and other modern thinkers.

CEE’s 2010 fundraising appeal

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

From the Executive Director

In 2009 CEE won the Templeton Freedom Award. The award was for our creative course development, and it was the result of a competition with over 100 entries from centers, institutes, and think tanks around the world.

CEE has developed original courses in Entrepreneurship and Ethics and Capitalism and the Modern World , and we have reached a growing audience of college students, high school students, professors, and readers of our Kaizen newsletter both in print and online.

We are proud of what we have accomplished in our first four years, and I hope you will support us so that we can both continue and increase our efforts.

Please check out our Accomplishments List for our first four years — but there are two items I would like to highlight: Shawn Klein, having completed and defended his dissertation this year, is now Dr. Shawn Klein; and I won our college’s Excellence in Teaching Award.

CEE was launched in 2007 with a grant from the BB&T Charitable Foundation. That grant expires this coming year; hence our current fundraising efforts to ensure our ongoing progress.

Please look over the links to samples of our work and consider making a donation. And if you have any questions about our plans for the future, please feel welcome to contact me.

All the very best for the holiday season,
Stephen R. C. Hicks, Ph.D.

Professor of Philosophy
Executive Director, Center for Ethics and Entrepreneurship
