One-Day Seminar: Federalists v. Anti-Federalists hosted by Metro Georgia RESA (Smyrna, GA)

This seminar is designed to analyze the main arguments set forth in print during the crucial years of 1787-1788 concerning the ratification of the newly proposed Constitution of the United States. Through a close reading of the primary source material we will attempt to identify the most important principles that animated the participants in the discussion, including the fundamental assumptions about the political order and human nature. These texts have an authority of their own in connection with the great debate over ratification, and yet have an enduring quality that makes them not only useful but essential guides to understanding the development of political action and discourse over the subsequent centuries in American history and beyond.
