Listen to audio from this lecture:
CHRISTOPHER WOLFE is emeritus professor of political science at Marquette University and co-director of the Thomas International Center, and he holds the Thomas International Chair in Public Philosophy. His main area of research and teaching for two decades was American constitutional law, and his best known book in this area is The Rise of Modern Judicial Review (1986). Dr. Wolfe subsequently shifted his work back to political philosophy, especially natural law and liberal political theory, and his most recent book is Natural Law Liberalism (2006). In 1989, Dr. Wolfe founded the American Public Philosophy Institute, a group of scholars from various disciplines that seeks to bring natural law theory to bear on contemporary scholarly and public discussions. He became Vice-President of the Thomas International project in 2005. He outlined a distinctive university vision in “A University for All,” in The Idea of the Catholic University, ed. K. Whitehead (2009).
