This year-long course is based on classic texts in the history of political philosophy, ranging from Plato to Machiavelli and from Hobbes to Nietzsche. These texts will provide you with an insight into the emergence of ideas in the history of political thought and a set of problems and arguments to be examined.
The course is equally divided into Philosophy and English parts. Both parts of the course focus on the same five texts in the same sequence.
The course is taught to students from the departments of Economics, International Relations, Law, and Political Science by members of Bilkentʹs Philosophy Department and Faculty Academic English Program.
