The Carlyle Lectures : Rule, Law, and Liberty

The Carlyle Lectures, 2018

Lecture Four: Rule, Law, and Liberty  

While rule requires the willing obedience of the ruled to the rulers, it also requires the willing obedience of the rulers to the limits of constitutional order.  The first of three lectures developing a sub-theme of what might be called Platonic realism, this lecture argues for friendship as key to reconciling liberty and obedience in Republic IX and Laws III.
