Seminar Political Philosophy

Seminar on Political Philosophy
In this course we will consider two ancient philosophers (Plato and Aristotle) and two recent philosophers (Oakeshott and Strauss) who have thought about politics. Their subjects include: what is philosophy; what is political philosophy; and what are the occasion and purpose of them? Further, we will study what these writers about politics say about other subjects such as friendship, divinity, poetry, the whole, and education. (PSCI 0101 or 0107 or by waiver) 3 hrs. sem.
