What is Democracy? - Virtual

Thursday, July 23, 2020

American celebrate democracy every Fourth of July, but how often do we think about what democracy has meant and can mean? In this session we will explore the early foundation of democracy in ancient Greece. The 20th century altered what democracy could mean, and to understand that new context we will take a look at the philosophy of John Dewey. We will then discuss what it means to practice democracy in our current environment.
