PSCI 455 - American Political Thought

This course explores questions central to political theory. It begins with traditional readings on social contract theory, liberal democracy, speech rights, and Marxism. It then turns to a closer investigation of the relationship between morality and political thought: What role should the modern state play in people's lives? Some of the specific issues explored in this portion of the course will be racial profiling, drug legalization, pollution control, and school vouchers.
