Thucydides’ Pursuit of Freedom: A Conversation with Mary Nichols

with Mary P. Nichols

In this Liberty Law Talk, Mary Nichols discusses her new book, Thucydides and the Pursuit of Freedom, which explores the idea of freedom in Thucydides’ History of the Peloponnesian War. This work, which Thucydides offered as a possession for all time, permits us, Nichols observes, to consider the manifestations of freedom in both cities and individuals.

One of the great classics, and something to be revisited again and again.

An excellent discussion, really enjoyed listening to Mary Nichols. The discussion of Alcibiades reminded me of Donald Trump.

Adam Smith, in his Lectures on Rhetoric and Belles Lettres, often and consistently praises Thucydides, sometimes defending him against critics.
