Introduction to Political Theory

POLITICAL SCIENCE 106

This course offers an undergraduate-level introduction to the field of political theory, which is the study of the concepts and values that are central to governance and politics: for example, democracy, power, freedom, and justice. Over the course of the semester we will read some historical texts that are considered "canonical," such as Jeremy Bentham's Introduction to the Principles of Morals and Legislation and Karl Marx's Capital. However, our emphasis will be contemporary works, like those of Elizabeth Anderson, Michel Foucault, and Charles Mills.
