PS 582 Liberalism and Its Critics

Critical examination of the theory and practice of liberalism as an ongoing tradition. The basic elements of liberalism are identified and discussed and criticisms of the liberal tradition, as offered by communitarians, classical republicans, feminists, and postmodernists, are examined. Liberal responses to these criticisms are also explored. Also offered for undergraduate-level credit as PS 482 and may be taken only once for credit. Expected preparation: PS 381.
