The History Of Political Thought

by Justin Chiarot

This course offers a history of political thought from Plato to the present, an overview of the ideas that have shaped the form of governments from the ancient Greek and Roman empires, through the Middle Ages, Reformation, Enlightenment, and the age of Revolutions into the twentieth century. These lectures will help develop a framework through which we may view and assess our current state of affairs, as well as kindle a renewed zeal to hold all political matters captive to justice and truth.
