Polaris Lecture

by Kathleen McCoy  |   

On Feb. 22 the Teaching American History series and the Democracy Forum in association with the Anchorage School District will welcome the lecturer Michael Zuckert from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in Library Room 307.
Zuckert received his B.A. from Cornell University and his Ph. D. from the University of Chicago. He formally taught at Carleton College and is now Professor of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame. He has written extensively on American political thoughts and the political philosophy of early modernity. Among his books are The Natural Rights Republic, and most recently, The Truth about Leo Strauss, co authored by Catherine Zuckert.

The lecture entitled America's Two Founding's will investigate the relation between American political principles and Christianity by looking at the two great founding moments of American life, the arrival of the Pilgrims and the makings of the American Revolution. Professor Zuckert will focus on the texts produced during these events, the Mayflower Compact and the Declaration of Independence.
