Taught By Professor Dennis Dalton, Ph.D., University of London, Barnard College, Columbia University
The issues Professor Dalton addresses in these lectures—and in Western political theory generally—fall into three sets of fundamental questions.
The first set of fundamental questions involves the essential characteristics of human nature and the good society.
The second set of fundamental questions involves the relationship between the individual and society.
The final set of fundamental questions involves theories of change.
