The United States was founded on a set of political ideals, yet the words we use to express them hide deep and lasting political disagreements. Our history is infused with recurring conflicts over the nature of liberty and of justice, and most prominently over whom the phrase for all includes. In this 12-credit, writing-intensive program, we will study several theories of political philosophy through historical and contemporary writings and in the context of different periods of U.S. history. The goal of the program is to come to a better understanding of different political philosophies and their lasting appeal in U.S. society. Credit will be awarded in political philosophy and U.S. history.
