Title: Reflections in Ancient, Modern, and American Political Thought. 

Abstract: This refreshingly eclectic panel considers thinkers and themes in Ancient, Modern, and American Political Thought. The political works of Cicero are addressed. Others consider the work of Camus and Girard. Furthermore, the panel includes both an examination of James Madison’s Federalist No. 10 and a critical evaluation of the Reagan Presidency. The panel’s constitutive papers consider such thinkers and themes in a manner that furthers the Ciceronian Society’s examination of Tradition, Place, and ‘Things Divine.’
