DOL Symposium Begins One Week from Today!

I'm just reminding folks that one week from today, the Dialectics of Liberty Facebook symposium commences, centering on an in-depth discussion of The Dialectics of Liberty: Exploring the Context of Human Freedom, co-edited by Roger E. Bissell, Chris Matthew Sciabarra (me!), and Edward W. Younkins.

The schedule is available on the DOL Home page here.

The cyberseminar begins next Sunday, February 16, 2020 and runs through June 20, 2020 (and beyond, I'm sure). This will be your only opportunity as a reader to study the book in a structured setting with the participation of 18 of the 19 contributors to the book. Our contributors will reply to comments and questions on their chapters, greatly enhancing your reading experience. Included in this discussion are the three co-editors, each of whom has written a chapter (and will open the forum with an examination of the Introduction to the book), followed by a week or so devoted to each of the following contributor's chapters:

Introduction: Roger Bissell, Chris Matthew Sciabarra, and Ed Younkins (February 16-22);

Chris Matthew Sciabarra (Chapter 1: February 23-29);

Ed Younkins (Chapter 2: March 1-7);

Through the wonders of technology, we are bringing together a remarkable group of scholars into a single forum to discuss their contributions to what we consider to be a truly trailblazing anthology in libertarian social theory.

We can't compel folks to purchase the book as a prerequisite to membership in this extraordinary study group, but we emphasize that this is a study group. So we ask members to secure a copy of the book through their local or institutional libraries, through Lexington Books, amazon.com, or at a deep discount from the DOL Discount Page.

The discount page will be available until our supply is exhausted and we will be accepting members even after the symposium begins. But if you want to truly take advantage of this opportunity, we strongly suggest that you be pro-active and start at the beginning! You won't regret it!
