CWCV 2010-001: Rule of Law MW 3:35 – 4:50 PM
About the class: The Rule of Law provides the fundamental foundation of freedom, capitalism, and the Constitution. Yet today in the United States it faces unprecedented threats. This class will examine the rule of law as a historical development, philosophical concept, and institutional reality, as well as contemporary threats to the rule of law. Among other topics, the class will discussion the intellectual sources of the rule of, the unique institutional foundations in the Western world that led to its emergence in the Middle Ages, and its practical value in terms of the preservation of freedom and capitalism. The course will then address threats to the rule of law, including “Woke” ideology, the rise of anti-capitalist attitudes, crony capitalism, and intellectual attacks on concepts such as freedom of speech, due process, and other formal and informal institutional norms.
CWCV 2010-002: Hayek and his Critics M 5:05 – 7:35 PM
About the class: F.A. Hayek was awarded the Nobel Prize in economics in 1974. But he also argued, “Nobody can be a great economist who is only an economist—and I am even tempted to add that the economist who is only an economist is likely to become a nuisance if not a positive danger.” Hayek’s insights transcended economics to other fields. He also influenced a generation of politicians, most notably Margaret Thatcher. This course will survey the full sweep of Hayek’s thinking, with a particular focus on his contributions to law and economics. The course will also examine leading extensions and critiques of Hayek’s views as well as the continued relevance and importance of his ideas in the modern age.
