PSC 101 Foundations Of Political Thought

3 credit hours

This course is an introduction to the theoretical study of politics and to some central ideas that have influenced the political life in the West. Through a survey of selected writings and authors, from Ancient Greece to the present, students will explore the various ways in which questions on the nature of the state, governing, authority, law, freedom, rights, justice, equality, and the common good, have been formulated and addressed. Attention will be paid to how these investigations help us understand the nature of our own political regime and what might constitute our ethical and legal responsibilities to that regime.
