Cicero, a philosopher, and politician from the Roman Republic argues for the mutual importance of friendship and virtue informing people—and especially leaders—who both enjoy life and contribute to the common good.
Our newest Reading features reflections from Cicero in our revised and renewed discussion on the nature and importance of friendship.
The new foreword is co-written by Senator Tim Scott and Representative Trey Gowdy who have written and spoken extensively on building and maintaining friendship across differences in their book Unified. They recently spoke at our Evening Conversation on the ways in which our alienation from each other is destroying individual lives and the fabric of society — and what can be done about it. You can view the full conversation here.
