Peter C. Myers is Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and Visiting Graduate Faculty member at Ashland University. He is the author of “Our Only Star and Compass: Locke and the Struggle for Political Rationality” and “Frederick Douglass: Race and the Rebirth of American Liberalism.”
