Expanded Course Description
This course explores the philosophical questions that are most central to our lives as residents and citizens of political states, subjected to political authority and power. What is sovereignty and where does it come from? How is political power organized and what role does it play in the life of an individual? Do political institutions proceed directly from human nature, or is human nature shaped by the political? We will explore such ideas as freedom, justice, natural law, natural rights, and the social contract. Students will be asked to explore these questions based on the work of major political philosophers from Plato to Marx and on into the contemporary period. The class may be organized around a particular theme (war and gender, the social contract, human nature and political power, etc.), so students should check the Philosophy Dept. course description for further information.
