Recognized as one of the 20th century’s preeminent political philosophers and historian of ideas, the polymathic Isaiah Berlin was a celebrated British essayist, raconteur and scholar. An alumnus of Oxford University’s Corpus Christi College and Professor of Social and Political Theory at Oxford, Berlin was most famous for his influential lecture and paper “Two Concepts of Liberty,” in which he explored pluralism. Roger Cohen, noted journalist and columnist for The New York Times, will speak on the importance of Berlin’s work and ideas in a time of growing intolerance.

This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition "500 Years of Treasures from Oxford." For more information on the exhibition, visit cjh.org/oxford.
