We Have a Plan: From Sarajevo to Baghdad | 06/26/14
Joel H. Rosenthal
How should we mark the 100th anniversary of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the event that led to WWI? Here in Sarajevo, remembering its tragic history at both the beginning and end of the 20th century, it's clear that passivity in the face of instability is not an answer. But it's equally clear that we should be humble about remedies. » Publications » Articles, Papers, and Reports

Moral Imagination | 05/14/14
David Bromwich
David Bromwich draws upon thinkers such as Burke, Lincoln, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr. to show that it is moral imagination which allows us to judge the right and wrong of actions apart from ourselves, to see the needs of strangers as clearly as the needs of friends. Thus it is essential to governing and to the well-being of the state. » Studio » All Audio, Video, Transcripts
