The Witherspoon Institute is a research centre in Princeton, New Jersey. It seeks to promote the moral foundations of a free and democratic society. The many topics covered by the Witherspoon umbrella include economics, ethics, family, bioethics, business and much more. Many scholars are involved with the Institute, most of whom are involved with Princeton University in some way. I would highlight in particular Robert P. George, a senior fellow, who is McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and Director of the James Madison Program in American ideals and Institutions at Princeton University.
George and others contribute to the Institute’s mouthpiece, Public Discourse. All of their articles are available online. If you want rational, scholarly observations on current issues in our society, then this should be the first place you turn.
