Tonight: Political Philosophy monthly talk: Aquinas and the Market

Laurie will be live on zoom tonight at 7 p.m. US Central Time to discuss a bit about Aquinas and natural law and then to focus on his views on property. She’ll compare his views on private property with the neoliberal view as exemplified by Milton Friedman. To that end, part of the session she’ll be reading a section from the draft of the book she’s currently writing. The chapter is “Ideological Strong-Arming” and she spends some time discussing how Friedman helped set up the conditions for what we now call “capitalist realism.”
