Summary

  • In this talk Dr. Tomlins traces the intellectual origins of the Wisconsin Idea to the first sustained encounters of law with social science in post-Civil War United States. (The American Social Science Association (ASSA) was established in 1865.) He then explores two twentieth century variations on the Wisconsin Idea: the law and economics scholarship of John R. Commons, and the law and society scholarship of Willard Hurst
