Political Thought and Constitutional Government


The Program in Political Thought and Constitutional Government explores the Western tradition of reflection on the relationships among law, government, and political morality. A particular focus of the Program is on the idea of natural law in the Greek, Roman, Jewish, Christian, and Enlightenment traditions. The Program also examines modern social problems, particularly as they are manifested in the domain of public law. Through its support for the study of foundational philosophical issues, the Program seeks to contribute to the civic education of students and the general public.
