Dewey Lecture in Law and Philosophy

Dewey Lecture in Law & Philosophy: Michael Walzer, "Trying Political Leaders"

Date: 
01.20.2010
Location: 
Courtroom

The subject of this year's Dewey Lecture is the political morality and wisdom of putting political leaders on trial after we have endured their leadership (and other nations, perhaps, have endured their crimes). Political trials have a long history-and the judgments we make of their judgments are highly contested.
