GOVT 1616 - Introduction to Political Philosophy

(HB) (HA-AS)      
Winter, Summer. 4 credits. Student option grading.

A. Moon.

This course offers a survey of Western political Philosophy. We will be reading and discussing the spectrum of great canonical theorists that include Plato, Aristotle, Christ, St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas, Machiavelli, Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Wollstonecraft, J.S. Mill, Burke, Marx, Fanon, Malcolm X and M. L. King. Our approach will be both historical and conceptual, as we explore the nature of justice, freedom and equality—their presence and absence–in the Western Tradition. (PT)
