Course Description:
Political philosophy is the search for "the best way to live" -- what Socrates and Plato called "the Good Life". This is the foundational course of political science. It approaches the problems of contemporary life, as experienced by the individual, from a "big picture" understanding of human nature. This draws from anthropology, psychology, and world history. It brings to bear on the present the wisdom of primordial, classical, modern, and post-modern political philosophy. (Cross-list PHIL 302)
