An introduction to upper-level courses in political theory, this course offers an introductory survey of political theory from ancient Athens to 20th-century North America, Asia, and Europe. We will read, discuss, and write about works authored by a number of seminal political thinkers. In doing so, we will encounter and evaluate diverse answers to some of the central questions in the analysis of politics: What is politics and where does it take place? What does it mean to exercise political rule? What is justice? How are political societies legitimately founded? What is the place of revolution in politics? What is power and how does it operate in political life? How is democracy intertwined with struggles against social oppression?
