Learning about Liberty: The Cato University Home Study Course
Date: October 2007
Duration: 31 hours 30 minutes
Spend time with some of the world's greatest minds and truest friends of freedom.
When was the last time you were truly energized by ideas? In our era of WiFi, high def, high res, compressed digital, podcasts, and video clips of 24-hour news channels and sound bites, how can you gain calm perspective and thoughtful understanding? Whatever happened to real thinking?
For that, you can turn to the Cato University Home Study Course. It offers you the opportunity to deepen your perspectives, knowledge, and insight through exposure to some of the world's most compelling thinkers. The growth of human freedom-and with it science, culture, and capitalist prosperity-are examined, explained, and clarified through the works and ideas of some of our civilization's most brilliant thinkers. Mastering their ideas can make you a more effective advocate of freedom, a more informed and interesting member of your community, and someone more people will turn to for guidance and insight.
The Cato University Home Study Course immerses you in the thoughts and views of John Locke, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, James Madison, Adam Smith, Voltaire, John Stuart Mill, Henry David Thoreau, Ayn Rand, F. A. Hayek, Milton Friedman, and others. You are stimulated and surrounded by their groundbreaking ideas on liberty, justice, property, constitutionalism, free trade, capitalism, toleration, and peace.
This is a self-paced, home-study program, enabling you to spend time with brilliant minds while in your home, office, or car, during a workout, while on vacation, or wherever and whenever you have an opportunity to listen and think. They definitely aren't the type of dry lectures you may have nodded off to in school. Each program is presented by professional actors and broadcasters, and the content is lively, dynamic, and truly thought provoking.
Portions of the audio programs were originally produced by Knowledge Products and have been adapted for the Home Study Course. Additional material was created specifically for each program and is available only through the Cato University Home Study Course.
