Aspen Lecture: The World According to Star Wars

There’s Santa Claus, Shakespeare, Mickey Mouse, the Bible, and then there’s…. Star Wars. In his fun but especially erudite exploration, renowned Harvard Law professor Cass R. Sunstein explores the lessons of Star Wars as they relate to childhood, fathers, the Dark Side, rebellion, and redemption, and how they apply—believe it or not—to constitutional law, economics, and political uprisings. (Book signing to follow.)

Speakers: Cass Sunstein
Festival: 2016
