Sophomore Government Tutorial: The Rise of the Modern Nation-State

CSS 230
Spring 2014
Section: 01   02  
Certificates: International Relations

The sophomore tutorial in government introduces students to the study of the developing relationship between the government and the governed, and the institutions and evolving forms of justification that accompanied these reconfigurations from Plato's REPUBLIC to the American republic. Along the way, students will be introduced to the method of inquiry of the ancients and the moderns who, respectively, as political philosophers and political scientists, balanced contrasting first principles and competing interests to proffer their period-specific answers to the perennial question, "who governs?"
