First Principles: Natural Law and the Theologico-political Question
The seminar will be taught (and students will be housed) on the campus of Princeton University from July 28 August 10 . This years seminar will focus on the relation between natural law and the theologico-political question, that is, the question of the best way of life, enshrined in the best laws, supported by the best form of political regime. Students will consider this topic by reading and discussing works of Thomas Aquinas, Thomas More, Eric Voegelin, Harry Jaffa, selected works from the Vatican on political life ( Quas Primas and Dignitatis Humanae ), and key documents of the American Founding.
