Diggins will discuss the contributions made by the second president of the United States in shaping the early American republic. He also will consider the extent to which Adams has left an enduring legacy.

Diggins, a Distinguished Professor of the Graduate Center at the City University of New York, is the author of many published works, including "The Lost Soul of American Politics: Virtue, Self-Interest and the Foundations of Liberalism" (1984).
