Description

The programme will consist of panel discussions on Alan Ryan's contributions to normative political and social theory and the history of political thought.

Lunch will be provided.

Alan Ryan, FBA is Emeritus Professor of Political Thought at the University of Oxford. He left Oxford for the US in 2010 and retired in 2015 after serving as Professor of Philosophy at Stanford and of Politics at Princeton University. At Princeton, he was also a Fellow of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions, and served as Acting Director of the Values and Public Life certificate program at the Center for Human Values in 2012-13. From 1996- 2009, he served as Warden of New College, Oxford, and was the founding Director of the Rothermere American Institute. He was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 1985. From 2000 to 2010, he taught at UVA Law School a course on the UK Human Rights Act of 1998, drawing on the shared (until 1776) and divergent (after 1776) constitutional and political histories of Britain and the United States. He has authored an extensive list of highly esteemed publications; his most recent, On Politics: A History of Political Thought: From Herodotus to the Present, published in 2012, and was widely hailed as a magisterial work firmly positioning him as one of the most important political theorists of our time. His collected essays, The Making of Modern Liberalism, also appeared from Princeton University Press in 2012.
