Hill to Discuss Roots of Liberal Philosophy
Written By Tyler Gardinier '14, PR Intern
Liberal legacy goes back further than one might think
Utica, NY (11/04/2013)- On Wednesday, Nov. 20, the UC History Club Herodotus and the Pre-Law Society present “The Liberal Legacy of the Barbarian West” as told by Dr. Christopher Hill, Frank Bergmann Lecturer on Law and Liberty at Alexander Hamilton Institute.
The lecture will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the Carbone Family Auditorium in the Economic Crime, Justice Studies and Cybersecurity Building.
Why are we free, and why do we care so much? Where does this idea come from? Hill will discuss these questions how the idea of liberal philosophy is not just from the Enlightenment, but also from a time much earlier. The barbarous time provided a glimpse of the first embrace of the concept of freedom, and is one of the great social and political accidents in the history of humanity.
The lecture is free and open to the public. This presentation, originally scheduled for Nov. 6, was postponed due to speaker illness. Nov. 20 is the new date.

"There is no question that my careers at GE and Rubbermaid wouldn't have worked out without the foundation that UC gave me." "I chose business as a major for the financial background it gave me. My UC degree gave me the opportunity to build my career at General Electric, where I spent 31 years, ending up as senior vice-president of corporate marketing and sales. I then went on to run Rubbermaid for six years and ended up as CEO. There is no question that the GE career and the Rubbermaid career wouldn't have worked out without the foundation that UC gave me."
