Description

Philosopher Joseph Tussman, of the University of California at Berkeley, details a provocative proposition that, since the government already assumes responsibility for protecting the body of the citizen, perhaps it should also assume a similar responsibility for the moral and intellectual development of the mind. The Center staff members are joined by pioneer educator Alexander Meiklejohn for these discussions. July 24, 1963.
