by Harvey C. Mansfield via Harvard Magazine
Kenan Professor of Government Harvey Mansfield wrote to this magazine in late November to share a story about the belated, posthumous publication of a dissertation he supervised 44 years ago—that of Delba Winthrop, Ph.D. ’74, who later became his wife. She takes up book three of Aristotle's Politics, on the subject of democracy, and the balance of the whole versus the parts, so fundamental to self-governance in a democratic society. A conference honoring the book takes place today at the Hoover Institution in Washington, D.C.
