This course offers an introduction to some of the major (as well as some minor) figures in Western political thought, from ancient Greece to our day. The over-arching topic that will guide our inquiry pertains to political action: does the realm of politics make particular demands on us as citizens? As rulers? Are questions of political action subject to rational justification? Are sacrifices—moral, social, spiritual—justifiable in the pursuit of political ends?
