The Higher Purpose of Statesmanship


The Higher Purpose of Statesmanship

In a letter to his wife Abigail, John Adams envisions the sort of society in which it is the duty of a statesman to procure and secure: a society in which his children can pursue the arts, and reflect upon the universal truths of the laws of Nature and of Nature’s God, rather than engaging in politics and in war. As Larry P. Arnn explains, the true merit of statesmanship lies in protecting the articulation of these principles. Watch this short video with Dr. Arnn and learn more.
The video is a clip from Lecture 1 of Hillsdale’s Online Course: “Great Books 101,” featuring Larry P. Arnn, president of Hillsdale College.
