Post date: February 4, 2003 — 5 p.m.
Beginning this Thursday, Feb. 6, Harvard Law School Professors Janet Halley and Duncan Kennedy will hold a series of workshops to reexamine notable–and often controversial–books. Entitled “Book Trouble 2003,” these discussions will explore the role specific books play in the development of people’s professional roles, historical crises, social alliances and social movements. The first book to be discussed will feature Professor Charles Fried on John Stuart Mill’s “On Liberty.” The discussion will begin at 4 p.m. in Pound 102.
Subsequent books to be examined will include Harold Cruse’s “The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual”, Richard M. Hare’s “Moral Thinking” and Karl Marx’s “On the Jewish Question”. For a full workshop schedule, please visit the Book Trouble 2003 web site.
