Course Description

This course is Part 2 of Political Philosophy & Governing, which follows Part 1 and covers eight political thinkers from Niccolo Machiavelli through Edmund Burke and modern schools of political thought that follow their philosophical foundations of government rule. Part 2 will be followed by Part 3 in the fall 2020 term, covering the most recent political thinkers from those of the Federalist Papers to the present, to include the political philosophies of Hegelianism, Marxism, nihilism, Fascism, Soviet Communism, postmodernism, and feminism. As in Part 1, treatment will feature government policy-making and its connection to differing views on the essence of human nature. We will use the same textbook as was used in Part 1. | Lecture (plus questions)
