Harvey Mansfield is one of the most celebrated and valued teachers in America. He is a professor of government at Harvard—and has been so since 1962. This year, some of his students and admirers held a conference called “Harvey Mansfield at 90.” With Jay, Professor Mansfield discusses some of his career-long concerns: Aristotle, Machiavelli, Tocqueville . . . He also answers, “What is democracy? And how about equality, as distinct from equity, maybe?” Here is another question—one that has been in the air recently: “What is manliness? What makes a real man, or manly man?” Mansfield wrote an entire book on the subject. In all, this is an enriching and enjoyable hour with a great teacher, with nary a cent to be paid in tuition.
