Patrick J. Deneen on WHY LIBERALISM FAILED with Samuel Freeman

Co-sponsored by the Penn Program for Research on Religion and Urban Civil Society  and the Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy

Of the three dominant ideologies of the 20th century–fascism, communism, and liberalism–only the last remains.  Could liberalism’s triumph be its own undoing?  Collegium Institute welcomes Prof. Patrick Deneen, the David A. Potenziani Memorial Associate Professor of Constitutional Studies at the University of Notre Dame, to Penn to discuss his new book on the roots of the American political project and its contemporary upheaval.

Response by Prof. Samuel Freeman, Avalon Professor of the Humanities, Professor of Philosophy and Law (Penn)
