Spring Political Philosophy Conference April 12-14

March 22, 2013

Lindenwood University will host a political philosophy conference, Free Markets and Localism, April 12-14. The event is sponsored by the university’s Liberty and Ethics Center and is funded by a grant from the Charles Koch Foundation.

The conference was planned in conjunction with an upper-level philosophy and economics course led by organizer Rachel Douchant, PhD, associate professor of philosophy. It’s the sixth year the university has hosted the event and the third year the Koch Foundation has funded it.

“The goal is to facilitate the discussion of free markets and their impact on ethics, as well as to provide opportunities for our students to learn more about regional and national efforts pertaining to such topics,” Douchant said. “It’s going to be a great opportunity to explore the dynamic relationship between free markets and local social environments in our increasingly global and regulatory world.”

Carey Roberts, PhD, of Arkansas Tech University, will deliver the keynote address, “Spontaneous Order and the Origins of American Freedom,” at 4 p.m. on Friday, April 12, on the St. Charles campus in Harmon Hall’s Elizabeth Dunseth Memorial Auditorium. Howard Wall, PhD, director of the Institute for the Study of Economics and the Environment at Lindenwood, will be among five other scholars to also present at locations within the university, near historic Main Street in St. Charles, Mo., and at the Historic Daniel Boone Home and Heritage Center in Defiance, Mo.

All presentations are free and open to the public. No registration is required.
