Hillsdale College

Human freedom, a characteristic feature of Western Civilization, makes possible the serious and widespread study of the liberal arts. In turn, this kind of study helps to shape and maintain the character of a free people. This interdisciplinary seminar will explore the relationship between freedom and the liberal arts through a consideration of politics, religion, economics, and literature.
