How Did We Get Here?: Social Contract

Reeder's Alley Interpretive & Convention Center 101 Reeder's Alley, Helena, MT, United States

The theory of a “social contract” plays a crucial role in American history & in much of contemporary political theory. In this evening’s program led by community philosopher David Nowakowski, we’ll trace the main currents of this idea from early incarnations in the work of Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau, through influential 20th-century philosophers like Rawls, to the present. We’ll examine how historical circumstances shaped each thinker’s account & reflect on how those continue to reverberate in the present. Learn more & RSVP here!
