Module overview

Students should gain a knowledge of how political ideas - such as freedom, equality, justice, or democracy - have been understood in different and incompatible ways, and how those different understandings have been the occasion for ideological or normative debates. Through an analysis of those concepts and the ways in which they are deployed, students will gain an insight into the nature of some of the most important historical and/or contemporary controversies within political theory.
