LSO230 - Modern Social and Political Thought


ENG106 or equivalent.

This course introduces students to the seminal ideas of major western thinkers of the modern period. This course provides an historical and integrated inter-disciplinary perspective on the development of those ideas that have shaped the thought of our own time.
The twenty-first century begins with the promise of new ideas, new technologies as well as the challenges associated with these apparent changes. This course is designed to facilitate the development of students' capacity to think both critically and historically about their own time, the past and social movements. It will introduce students to the ideas that have shaped our age and our ways of thinking thereby placing their own thinking within a larger context and increasing the clarity of that thought.
In addition to the professor responsible for and the primary lecturer of the course, students will be active participants through class discussions, presentations, and debates.
