30 October 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm GMT
Tutor: Darren Harper BA (Hons) PGCEGo to all Courses
For two and a half millennia, philosophers have been reflecting upon politics and society. Beginning our journey with Plato’s Republic, and progressing through Hobbes’ Leviathan, Rousseau’s Social Contract, Rawls’ A Theory of Justice and Nozick’s Anarchy, State and Utopia, we will explore the question: what is the best form of society?
Suggested Reading: An Introduction to Political Philosophy by Jonathan Wolff
