Hillsdale College Online: The Federalist Papers
Fridays from October 13 through November 10 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.
LaGrange County Public Library
Hillsdale College makes a number of its most popular courses freely available online, and we are pleased to be able to offer these free college classes to the public. Beginning on Friday, October 13, and continuing for the next four Fridays, we will be presenting The Federalist Papers. At each session, we will view two half-hour video lectures, with a 15-minute intermission for coffee and discussion. About the Federalist Papers: Written between October 1787 and August 1788, The Federalist Papers is a collection of newspaper essays written in defense of the Constitution. Writing under the penname Publius, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay explain the merits of the proposed Constitution, while confronting objections raised by its opponents. Thomas Jefferson described the work as “the best commentary on the principles of government, which ever was written.” This course will explore major themes of The Federalist Papers, such as the problem of majority faction, separation of powers, and the three branches of government.
