John Locke: Our First Founding Father NEW!
During the English Glorious Revolution of 1688, John Locke articulated principles of constitutional government. We will examine excerpts of his writing. Then we will discuss five short founding documents of our constitutional system, dated 1776 to 1793. Topics will include the rule of law, innate rights, equality, and religious toleration. We will create thoughtful conversations about the meaning and significance of these principles. Participants should plan to spend an hour preparing for each week's conversation.
