Program(s): Undergraduate Courses, Summer College
*Taught Online for Summer 2021* In this course we read and discuss works by classical, medieval, and early modern thinkers that have helped shape, if not set, the terms in which politics and society continue to be argued and imagined. The aims of this course are to wrestle deeply with the texts we are reading and to reflect on the varied forms and historical contexts in which their ideas about life in a political community are presented.
Students should have demonstrated facility with critical reading and writing (either in English or Social Studies courses) and must be comfortable with seminar-style discussion.
