Philip Pettit gives Julius Stone Address 2021

Monday, May 24, 2021

Philip Pettit, Laurance S. Rockefeller University Professor in the University Center for Human Values, delivered the Julius Stone Address 2021earlier this month – and in person – at the University of Sydney Law School. The lecture was canceled last spring due to the pandemic.  

In “Can the People be Sovereign?” Pettit explores popular sovereignty, which he says has become somewhat of a trope in political arguments, and how it connects with the history of the original concept.  Watch a recording of the lecture.
