"The Anti-Trinitarian Sources of Liberalism"

Michael Gillespie (Department of Political Science, Duke University)

This event is free and open to the public. Supported by the Boston University Center for the Humanities.

In this paper Gillespie builds on his argument in The Theological Origins of Modernity, arguing that liberalism is not only not irreligious but is founded on an Antitrinitarian interpretation of scripture developed first by Michael Servetus and then developed in Transylvania and Poland before being carried by refugees from religious persecution to Holland, Britain, and America where it came to serve as the backbone of liberal thought

Michael Gillespie (Ph.D. University of Chicago) is Jerry G. and Patricia Crawford Hubbard Professor of Political Science at Duke University, and the author of  The Theological Origins of Modernity. He is also co-editor of Nietzsche's New Seas: Explorations in Philosophy, Aesthetics, and Politics, and Ratifying the Constitution, and has published articles on Montaigne, Hegel, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and various topics in American political thought, as well as on the relation of religion and politics. He is currently completing a book entitled Nietzsche's Final Teaching. Professor Gillespie has received grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the German Academic Exchange Service, the Templeton Foundation, the Liberty Fund, and the Earhart Foundation, and is the Director of the Gerst Program in Political, Economic, and Humanistic Studies.
