Readings in 20th Century Political Thought
0.5 Credit

Twentieth century political thought challenged many of the classical certainties that accompanied the history of political thought from ancient Greece to the end of the 19th century, and political theorists are considering what will become classical certainties for the 21st century. This seminar focuses on selective readings in 20th century political thought, selected according to rapidly changing time and circumstance. Among the core topics explored are pluralist thought and democratic legitimacy in the context of multicultural society, and critical political economy in the context of globalizing capitalist systems.
