Political Philosophy

Fancy Dancing by Harry Jaffa

NRO has another Peter Robinson five-series interview with the renowned Lincoln scholar and political philosopher Harry V. Jaffa. Essential conversation for all conservatives and for all Americans. One point would confront those who claim political superiority on the ground that they "believe in science": They need to make sure they are worshipping the right gods.

Peter Robinson has done us a great service posting these interviews.

While we are at it, it might be worthwhile to note (esp. for those who believe that healthcare enables their happiness or protects their right to life) that Jaffa argues the founding was classical -- that the pursuit of happiness as pursuit of virtues was something "Aristotle couldn't put better."
