“…that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” The Gettysburg Address
Join us on Thursday, February 20 at 9:30 a.m. for a sample discussion. A Basic Program instructor will lead this open-to-all discussion on Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. A short presentation on the Basic Program will follow the discussion.
The Basic Program offers a rigorous, noncredit liberal arts curriculum that draws on the strong Socratic tradition of the University of Chicago. There are no tests or papers; instead, we discuss the foundational texts of Western literature, politics, and social thought. Come join the conversation!
