PSCI 0101 - Intro to Political Philosophy
*Introduction to Political Philosophy* What is politics and how should it be studied? Is there a best regime? A best way of life? How are these two things related, if at all? Can we gain knowledge of such topics? We will examine these questions through a study of the some or all of the following texts: Plato, /Apology of Socrates/, /Republic/; Aristotle, /Nicomachean Ethics/, /Politics/; Thucydides, /The Peloponnesian War/; St. Augustine, /Confessions/; St. Thomas Aquinas, /Summa Theologica/, /Summa Contra Gentiles/; /Machiavelli/, /The Prince/; Hobbes, /Leviathan/; Locke, /Second Treatise on Government/; Rousseau, /Discourse on the Origin and Foundations of Inequality Among Men/; Marx, /The Communist Manifesto/, /The German Ideology/, /Capital/; and /Weber/, “Science as a Vocation.” 4 hrs. lect./disc.
