Course contents:
Whether considered as a distortion of reality or a coherent frame to analyze politics, political philosophy is maybe one of the most important areas concerning our political lifes. Indeed, the beliefs and values concerning the exercise of authority can generate opposite systems of ideas regarding how to interpret human nature and how to orient social life, thus those systems may also produce conflicting approaches on how to define and apply politics. As matter of fact, the 20th century can be comprehended as a brutal battleground for sets of ideas that still shape contemporary policy debates. Therefore, this course seeks to examine core concepts and the development of political programs of liberalism (classical and modern), conservatism (traditional, neoliberal and neo-conservatism), socialism (communism and social democracy), anarchism, fascism, feminism, ecologism, religious fundamentalism and multiculturalism. At the same time, we will discuss the place and characterization of political philosophy itself in the 21st century.
