Humanities Symposia: Freedom's Just Another Word: Perspectives on 'On Liberty'

Wells Theater

Taylor Hall 112
Angola, IN 46703

Presented by Dr. Mike Blaz.

Ideas about "liberty" in speech, art, and politics differ greatly from country to country. In France, for example, it is illegal to deny the existence of the Holocaust. In the U.S. the ACLU vigorously defends Holocaust deniers' constitutional right to free speech. In this presentation, Dr. Blaz will examine these different perspectives through the lens of John Stuart Mill's seminal text, On Liberty. Audience members will have the opportunity to view and touch a first edition of Mill's text both before and after the presentation.
