From July 22-26, the blog Concurring Opinions will host an on-line symposium about The Rule of the Clan, moderated by Deven Desai. All readers are warmly invited to take part in what I’m sure will be a stimulating, wide-ranging discussion. I’m grateful already to my valued friends and readers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan for their interest contributing—if you’re able, I’ll be delighted to have you be a part of our conversation.
The dedicated commentators of the symposium come from a wide variety of intellectual backgrounds—and they’re terrific. They are:
Prof. Mark Fenster, Levin College of Law, University of Florida, author of Conspiracy Theories: Secrecy and Power in American Culture.
Dean Lucas Grosman, University of San Andrés School of Law, Argentina, author of Escasez e Igualdad: Los Derechos Sociales en la Constitución.
Dr. Arnold Kling, Adjunct Scholar, Cato Institute, blogger at askblog, author of Unchecked and Unbalanced: How the Discrepancy Between Knowledge and Power Caused the Financial Crisis and Threatens Democracy. Dr. Kling is also the author of “State, Clan, and Liberty,” a review of The Rule of the Clan for The Liberty Fund’s Library of Economics and Liberty.
Dr. Doyle R. Quiggle, Jr., author of “Ibn Tufayl’s Hayy Ibn Yaqdan in New England: A Spanish-Islamic Tale in Cotton Mather’s Christian Philosopher?” Dr. Quiggle has taught oratory, rhetoric and classics to U.S. soldiers in both Djibouti and Afghanistan.
