Full title: European Political Thought Since Rousseau We will examine the development of political thought in Europe from the second half of the eighteenth century to the start of the twentieth. We will look at the Kantian, Hegelian and Marxist developments in this tradition. We will discuss the important role played by differing conceptions of freedom, human nature, and history, in shaping the political thought of the period. And we will address issues concerning autonomy and authority, the nature of the state, and the limits to state power.

Topics vary by semester.
