POSC - 130. Political Theory


3 credit(s)
Political theory provides conceptual clarification evaluating what is just in the context of power in political life. This course introduces you to the field of political theory by focusing on social justice concepts such as equality, freedom, rights, power, law, diversity, and morality. In this course, we will approach political theory through attention to: 1. the historical location of ideas, 2. the literary or rhetorical nature of our texts, and 3. matters of contemporary relevance for thinking about political experiences today. We will read both classics in the field as well as important contemporary thinkers.
