Social Political Philosophy

Fall 2019

Taught By: Asad Haider

Section: A

CRN: 7029

Credits: 4

This course presents an introduction to classical themes of social and political philosophy from a historical and global perspective. We will begin by examining the canonical philosophical categories of rights, universalism, freedom, equality, and emancipation. We will then study the challenges to these notions and their geographical, economic, racial, and sexual boundaries. The readings combine philosophical texts with conceptual genealogies and historical case studies.
