POG 235 Western Political Thought

The central consideration of politics is the attainment of the “good society.” The history of Western political thought can be seen as an ongoing contestation of what we mean by the “good society” and what kind of political and social institutions are required for its realization. This course charts the history and contemporary relevance of these debates with a special focus on the idea of democracy from the ancient to the modern world. (Theory) (Formerly POG 330.)
