BIG BOOKS; THE PRINCE
Tuesdays, 7:00-8:30 p.m.
February 2, 9, and 16
Is Machiavelli a teacher of evil, as his contemporaries thought, or the author of a new moral code more suitable to the world, or simply amoral--a scientist describing the way states work and interact with each other? Whatever our judgment, the power and subtlety of his thought command our attention, no less today than in 1513 when the book was written. Few works of this brevity contain so much or have had as great an impact. 

This three-week discussion series will be led by Joseph Alulis, who has a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Chicago and is on the faculty at North Park University. He also teaches for the University of Chicago’s Basic Program of Liberal Education. Registration opens Nov. 23. Space is limited;  Glencoe residents will get priority if the class fills up. Sponsored by the Friends of the Glencoe Public Library.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR THIS VIRTUAL PROGRAM, WHICH WILL TAKE PLACE ON ZOOM. About 24 hours prior to the program, you will receive an e-mail message with a link to the program and instructions.
