Dr. Hubler Presents in San Francisco

James Harrington and the Logic of the Balance: Aristotle Transformed, written by Dr. Noel Hubler, interim chair and professor of philosophy, was selected as a featured paper for the Political Thought and Philosophy Division at the American Political Science Association meeting in San Francisco Sept. 1.

Harrington is the chief interpreter of Classical Republicanism to 17th Century England, whose influence extended to the American Founding Fathers. Although his status as a Republican theorist has been challenged by several historians, Dr. Hubler showed that Harrington is indeed a Republican theorist, drawing the main principles of his theory from Aristotle, modifying some of them under the influence of Francis Bacon’s scientific theories.
