Two Princes

In the American Interest, AHS speaker Jakub Grygiel explains why Antoine Saint-Exupéry’s Le Petit Prince should be on the reading lists for policymakers and international relations scholars:

"The Prince may offer technical knowledge of the political machine, but the Little Prince gives us wisdom of human interactions. By offering an alternative, rather more premodern, view of the social urge, the Little Prince alerts us to the existence of a whole realm of human and political behavior mostly ignored by modern political thought."
