POLSC 140 - Introduction to Political Theory


Credits: 4
An introduction to political theory with special emphasis on the problem of justice. As citizens, we must confront choices that affect not only our own lives, but the lives of others. How we approach these choices is therefore consequential. We must consider what we owe others and what others owe us in return. We must also consider how we can develop our ability to make choices wisely. In this course, we engage in these considerations by examining rival perspectives on human nature, citizenship, and the ethical uses of political power.
