Tonight on Extension 720: Founded in 1941, the Committee on Social Thought has become one of the most distinguished elements of the University of Chicago. Rather than focus on one particular discipline, the Committee is dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of great classic and modern texts from a variety of fields. Past members have included Allan Bloom, Saul Bellow, and Fran├žois Furet, just to name a select few. Tonight, we welcome three members of the Committee to discuss their history, philosophy and current scholarly work. Our guests are NATHAN TARCOV, professor of political science at the University of Chicago and member of the Committee on Social Thought since 1990, ROBERT PIPPIN, chairman of the Committee on Social Thought and professor of philosophy, and DANIELLE ALLEN, member of the Committee on Social Thought, professor of classical languages and literatures, and dean of the division of Humanities at the University of Chicago.

Information on past and future programs is available at our monthly program guide. You can listen to the show from 9 to 11 p.m. central time here.
