Philosopher of Politics: A Tribute to Harvey C. Mansfield and His Enduring Influence

Over the course of an extraordinary career spanning six decades, and as the author of fourteen books and translations, Professor Harvey C. Mansfield of Harvard University has made a lasting contribution to the history of political thought, uncovering important insights on the philosophical foundations of constitutionalism, self-government, executive power, political parties, and the powerful character of the American model.

Earlier this year, Professor Mansfield celebrated his eightieth birthday. To mark this significant milestone, and to reflect upon his impressive body of work, Hudson Institute hosted a conference on the theoretical foundations of Mansfield’s insights and their implications for American politics.

Professor Mansfield offered his reflections on both panels.
