CIE Class #1: America: Exceptional, or a Nation Like Every Other? with Paul Stern

We live in an unusually polarized political environment. The first step in addressing the serious divisions among us is to understand them. To this end, we will discuss the Declaration of Independence, along with letters from Thomas Jefferson and Abigail Adams, to see how the controversies concerning such issues as immigration, the aims of American foreign policy, and the meaning of equality have their roots in this, our founding document.

10:30 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.

TBD

CIE Class #2: Would the Father of Communism and the Father of Capitalism Be Best Friends? with Talia Argondezzi

Adam Smith (1723-1790), the Scottish philosopher and foundational theorist of modern capitalism, and Karl Marx (1818-1883), the German philosopher whose views on history and economics laid the foundation for modern communism and strongly influenced socialism, may seem like philosophical enemies. Today, those who align themselves ideologically with either man probably assume they are vehemently opposed to the other’s philosophy. But a closer look at Smith’s Wealth of Nations (1776) and Marx’s Communist Manifesto (1848) reveals striking similarities. In this class, we’ll discover the surprising ideas about which capitalists and communists—or at least one particular capitalist and one particular communist—might agree.

3:15 p.m. -4 p.m.

TBD
