POL202: Modern Political Philosophy

3 Credit(s)
Fulfills Core Requirement in Social Sciences
In this course, we begin with the radical break from earlier political thought and trace the development of modern political philosophy into the 20th century, reading authors such as Machiavelli, Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, and Nietzsche.  These ideas constitute a crucial background for understanding the American Founding, modern law, and contemporary culture-in short, for understanding ourselves. Cross-listed with PHL202 .
Theme: Western Heritage
