“The Market, the State, and Human Salvation,” By Donald Livingston:
Please enjoy Donald Livingston’s insightful lecture, “The Market, the State, and Human Salvation,” which was presented at the 2014 Liberty & Ethics Center Spring Conference at Lindenwood University. Here Livingston discusses the dueling political philosophies of Aristotle and Thomas Hobbes in relation to their differing views on human nature, political association, and normative positions on liberty, morality in politics, human scale, centralization, and other issues. Livingston remains true to his long-held position that the Aristotle’s political philosophy is superior to that of Hobbes. Viewers will also learn how Livingston here applies such political philosophy to historical and contemporary questions related to American history, David Hume’s political philosophy, the free market, political representation, republicanism, federalism, secession, etc.
