Examined: Plato, Aristotle, Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Spooner, and Rothbard....

...a new course by David Gordon.

If you take this course, you will never see the world the same.

Consider, David writes that Plato will be examined as an advocate of the "closed society" and thus a precursor of totalitarianism.

Learn about "Constant's generalization" that the "liberty of the ancients" and the "liberty of the moderns" differs in that ancient political thought subordinated the individual to the community, while modern political liberty respects the rights of individuals.

If knowledge is power, completion of this course will provide your brain with a nuclear weapon.
