Seminar: PS 365 - American Political Thought
Oregon State University, Political Science, Spring 2012
This course is an introduction to how politics and society have been, and continue to be, theorized and conceptualized in the United States of America. Both political developments and social conceptions will be embedded in their respective historical context. Equally, their legacy will be discussed as it relates to political and social challenges today.
The principal goal is to develop an understanding of the complex history of American political ideas and processes, to be able to theorize such processes, in order to comprehend past and present policy challenges.
