Mises Institute’s Libertarian Scholars Conference
October 20, 2018
BRI is offering medical students to apply HERE for one of five scholarships by September 27, 2018.
The Libertarian Scholars Conference was originally conceived as a forum for scholars from different disciplines to meet and exchange ideas on the study of liberty. The ultimate goal was to integrate their diverse insights and approaches into a broad interdisciplinary perspective on liberty, what Murray Rothbard called “the discipline of liberty.” The founders of the conference hoped that this discipline or systematic body of knowledge would give shape and direction to the growing ideological movement of modern libertarianism, much as British classical and French liberal political economy had guided the movement of classical (laissez-faire) liberalism. This series of conferences succeeded admirably in stimulating scholarly research from a libertarian perspective and attracting many new scholars, young and old, to the scientific study of liberty.
The libertarian movement has grown tremendously since the early 1980s and so has the need for intellectual guidance from experts in the social sciences and humanities, whose several disciplines help elucidate the nature of human liberty and its importance in nurturing and sustaining the social order that permits human civilization to flourish.
With this in mind, the Mises Institute, as heir to the Center for Libertarian Studies, is reviving the Libertarian Scholars Conference, which will take place on Saturday, October 20, 2018, in New York City, the site of the first conference.
