This course offers an introduction to some of the major — and even some minor — figures in Western political thought, from ancient Greece to our day. Our goal is to understand how the contributions of various thinkers at different times have helped people answer enduring questions about political life:

  • What is justice?

  • Must we obey political authorities?

  • What is human good?

  • What may do in our pursuit of our goals?

The course will combine historical with contemporary readings.
