Credits: 3 credits
Students examine important themes of the Western political tradition through an analysis of selected political philosophers such as Plato, Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Mill, and Marx. Students' encounter with these theorists initiates discussion of such concepts as authority, justice, freedom, equality, and political participation. Through these discussions, students apply the principles of certain political traditions and theorists to modern issues and consider ongoing and real-world political challenges and possibilities.
