University of Chicago Magazine
Ryan Johnson, AB'08
Author

From the author: "What's the purpose of government? Hint: it's not liberty or justice. In many ways, this book is a tribute to the University of Chicago core. The author was a mathematics major, but the long-dead thinkers in the 'Classics and Social and Political Thought' sequence gripped him and would not let go. Over the years, they kept demanding an answer. This book is his reply."
