“Danielle Allen is a towering political philosopher of the democratic art of being and a force for good.” – Cornel West
How do we repair our fractured democracy? Harvard political theorist Danielle Allen believes the path to health lies through re-building a supermajority of people—across political ideologies—ready to work together to support constitutional democracy. In a time of increased polarization and weakening trust, it might seem impossible to create such a supermajority. But Allen will show us where and how we can build this supermajority, and why it is important.
Danielle Allen is a James Bryant Conant University Professor and Director of the Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University. She is a professor of political philosophy, ethics, and public policy; a seasoned non-profit leader; democracy advocate; and distinguished author of several books including Our Declaration: A Reading of the Declaration of Independence in Defense of Equality, Cuz: An American Tragedy, and most recently, Justice by Means of Democracy.
