Summer Seminars 2017


The Witherspoon Institute’s summer seminars are a collection of intensive summer programs exploring vital moral questions in social, philosophical, legal, and political thought. These small seminars are led by some of the leading scholars of the United States and Great Britain, and they constitute the core of the Institute’s effort to encourage and inform outstanding young men and women at the high school, undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels who aspire to academic careers and rigorous scholarship.
