Introduction to Political Philosophy

by Yale University

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

This course is intended as an introduction to political philosophy as seen through an examination of some of the major texts and thinkers of the Western political tradition. Three broad themes that are central to understanding political life are focused upon: the polis experience (Plato, Aristotle), the sovereign state (Machiavelli, Hobbes), constitutional government (Locke), and democracy (Rousseau, Tocqueville). The way in which different political philosophies have given expression to various forms of political institutions and our ways of life are examined throughout the course.

A new approach

The race is to the swift. Those who are learned, civil, and above all those who have character. Time and chance play a minor role.

Great Program

As the title suggests, this was a great course.

Hard to follow (for the wrong reasons)

I really wanted this to be good, but I found the lecturer difficult to follow.
