In Search of the Constitution

IN SEARCH OF THE CONSTITUTION has found its way online, which, as far as I can tell, is the first Adler video to do so. You'll remember from Center materials that this is the one in which We Hold These Truths: Understanding the Ideas and Ideals of the Constitution is discussed thusly:

Bill Moyers and Mortimer Adler with students of St. John's College, Annapolis, MD

Students at St. John's College in Annapolis, MD, challenge Adler, the noted philosopher, author, and educator, on his views about fundamental ideas in the Constitution and their relevance today. Adler discusses Americans' lack of familiarity with the Constitution, the checks and balances provided by the Supreme Court, "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" and the welfare state, foreign policy, and legislating morality.
