“Great thinkers throughout history have aimed at attaining truth about how political societies should operate and how human beings should live.”

~ Sarah Akey

About

Great thinkers throughout history have aimed at attaining truth. These thinkers are worthy of study, contributing insightful ideas as to how political societies should operate and how human beings should live. I especially appreciate that our graduate program seeks to analyze these prominent thinkers and their ideas critically in order to understand these authors as they understood themselves.
