“On the Biblical, Geometrical, Political Mind”: A Panel in Honor of Bob Sacks

Seth Appelbaum, Phil LeCuyer, April Olsen, & Ken Wolfe

Wednesday, May 10, 2023, from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Great Hall, followed by refreshments and question period.


Robert Sacks, a long-time tutor and one of the College’s most original and esteemed thinkers, was mentored by and became a colleague of Jacob Klein and Leo Strauss—two of the intellectual giants who helped establish the College's stature and the Program of study we all share. Please join us for a panel discussion to mark both Mr. Sacks’s recent ninety-first birthday and the publication of his book Three Wells: Essays and Lectures on the Biblical, Political, Geometrical Mind. Panelists Seth Applebaum, April Olsen, Phil LeCuyer and Ken Wolfe will discuss essays from this book, as well as other topics in Mr. Sacks’ thinking over many years.
