Ronald Dworkin is widely regarded as one of the most influential legal and political philosophers of the last century. His contributions to constitutional and general jurisprudence, liberal egalitarian thought, and the field of metaethics, always managed to enliven the relevant discourse by boldly challenging previous paradigms and proffering innovative avenues of theoretical development. This spring, we invite you to join us in exploring and celebrating the legacy of this great scholar.

  • Richard Arneson
  • David Brink
  • Thomas Christiano
