A Response to a Former Student’s Inquiry

April 5, 2011

Dear Mr. Stone:

Re the study of statecraft today:

Useful places to begin include

1)     Thomas Aquinas, Treatise on Law, especially Q. 90, A. 4 (the definition of law);

2)     the thought and conduct of a democratic politician as seen in the Anytus of Plato’s Meno and of Plato’s Apology;

3)     the conduct and thought of a democratic politician as seen in the A. Lincoln of the Gettysburg Address and of the Second Inaugural Address.

Any questions?

G. Anastaplo
