Introduction to Political Thought and Theory
A survey in the field of political theory including how to interpret, discuss, critique, debate and write about classical and contemporary political thought and theory. Both classic or traditional approaches as well as more current and contemporary paradigms specific to constituent groups traditionally excluded will be examined. Through this course of study, students will learn to think and discuss critically, about both classic and modern issues in politics (e.g., individual versus community rights, freedom, equality and distributional justice, environmental sustainability and generational equity, the "rights" of nature and non-human life, power, sovereignty and the state, etc.).
