Key Concepts in Political Philosophy
PHIL 275
Spring 2015 not offered

This seminar offers an introduction to political philosophy. Establishing the key concepts of classical political philosophy through a reading of Plato's REPUBLIC, the course moves on to look at four challenges to the classical tradition in ecofeminism, anarchism, environmental sustainability, and the modern monetary reform movement. While offering the student a grounding in the foundational questions of Western philosophy, the class will be focused on contemporary problems related to social and economic injustice, development and globalization, possibilities for heterarchical or nonauthoritarian political community, and the political culture required for an economically and ecologically sustainable society.
