« back to classes page
Political philosophy is the study of fundamental questions about the state, government, politics, liberty, and justice.  This course will explore questions that ancient Greek political thinkers such as Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle wrestled with 2500 years ago and that continue to be political issues in the United States today. What makes a political regime legitimate? Are tyrants born or made? What does a strong middle class contribute to political system stability? Is there such a thing as political truth? What is the nature of justice in a political context? Is it possible to create a political system that is perpetual or are all systems doomed to collapse?
