PPR321: Reading Political Theory: Mill and Tocqueville
Tutor: Chris Macleod
This module gives students the opportunity to read and study the thought of two of the seminal thinkers in political theory. This module is, therefore, an opportunity to explore the texts slowly, methodically and in depth. It is also an opportunity to link that thought to the wider literature that has developed as a response to the thinkers' ideas. In so doing we develop a more thorough understanding of the ideas of the thinker in question, and see how those ideas link-up into a wider systematic and philosophic whole.
On successful completion of this module students will be able to:
40% coursework and 60% exam.
Lecture (1.5 hours) and seminar (1 hour) weekly.
