The Hoover Institution in Washington, DC hosted fellows Peter Berkowitz and Tod Lindberg on a conversation about greatness - ancient and modern - on September 28, 2016.

In 'The Heroic Heart', Tod Lindberg traces the quality of heroic greatness from its origin in prehistory to the present day. The designation of “hero” once conjured mainly the prowess of conquerors and kings acting out of boundless personal ambition. Heroes in the modern world come in many varieties, from teachers and mentors to firefighters and warriors; but the modern heroic heart acts to serve others and save others.
