Section Description

The seminar will consist of a reexamination of some of the major traditions in global political theory and jurisprudence as seen through the eyes of classical and modern political philosophers both from the global “North” and “South.”, and will also consider the political writings of some of the leading “Northern” and “Southern” political figures – democratic, populist, fascist and communist. We will discuss their claims and insights into the issues of law, order and justice; identity and legitimacy; peace and war; cooperation and conflict; intervention and independence; international equality and inequality; and we will seek an analysis and diagnosis of contemporary populisms and fascisms, making some effort to compare them with their historical antecedents.
