Remaking Liberalism for a Time of Authoritarian Threat

Please join us for a conversation with Professor Samuel Moyn, one of the most provocative and penetrating analysts of contemporary American democracy and the threats to it, for a discussion of his most recent book, Liberalism Against Itself: Cold War Intellectuals and the Making of Our Times. It is an intellectual history that traces modern liberalism, exploring its current fragility and limitations. Moyn presents a call for a new liberal philosophy and politics, and given the threats to liberalism facing our country and American Jews, his charge and argument could not be timelier.
