Forms of Freedom: Anarchism, Socialism, and Communitarianism|
What is freedom, and what political forms might it take? We will examine 19th- to 21st-century anarchist, socialist, and communitarian thought in Europe and America: ideas of communal freedom and individual liberty; the state and civil society; deliberation and emotion; authority, technology, power, and passion. Also, how are theory and action joined in these theories and movements?
