The Molinari Society will be holding its annual Symposium in conjunction with the Eastern Division of the American Philosophical Association at the Marriott Washington Wardman Park Hotel, 2660 Woodley Road NW, in Washington DC, January 6-9, 2016. Here’s the current schedule info:
Molinari Society symposium: Libertarianism and Welfare Rights
Friday, 8 January 2016, 11:15-1:15 p.m., location TBA.
Jennifer McKitrick (University of Nebraska—Lincoln)
Jan Narveson (University of Waterloo, Ontario), “Contracting to Liberty, Yes; to the Welfare State? No”
James P. Sterba (University of Notre Dame), “A Response to Narveson: Why Liberty Leads to Welfare”
Charles W. Johnson (Molinari Institute)
Roderick T. Long (Auburn University)
The symposium papers will also appear in an upcoming issue of the Molinari Institute’s new journal, the Molinari Review.
In addition, several of the symposium participants have other sessions on the program; see the APA schedule.
A second Molinari Society symposium, on “Police Abuse: Solutions Beyond the State,” originally scheduled for Friday evening, has unfortunately been cancelled (or, inshallah, postponed to next year).
