Dr. Christopher Wolfe

Professor Emeritus at Marquette University
Christopher Wolfe is a professor of political science at Marquette University. He graduated summa cum laude from Notre Dame in 1971 with a major in government and went on to study political philosophy at Boston College, receiving his Ph.D. in 1978. During his graduate studies he “migrated” from political philosophy to American political thought and Constitutional Law. He taught at Assumption College from 1975 to 1978 and came to Marquette in 1978, being promoted to associate professor in 1985, and full professor in 1992. Dr. Wolfe initially focused his research and teaching on Constitutional Law, and in particular the transformation of judicial review in the course of American history. His current work is on American public philosophy, and especially the relationship between natural law and liberalism, which will be published as Natural Law Liberalism (forthcoming from Cambridge University Press). Dr. Wolfe is the founder and President of the American Public Philosophy Institute (1989), an interdisciplinary group of scholars from various universities, which seeks to give natural law theory a more salient expression in current scholarly and public discussions

           

            Today Dr. Wolfe is Professor Emeritus at Marquette, and has decided to start his own university inspired by the intellectual approach of St. Thomas Aquinas.
