    Description

    Without even realizing it, we all use the fruits of political philosophy. From liberty to democracy to community, the terms and concepts originated by political philosophers are ingrained in our global consciousness. Yet many of us have an incomplete picture of how these ideas developed and, quite possibly, a skewed perception of their intentions and implications.

    This highly relevant course sheds light on the labyrinth of Western political and social theory, as well as its influence on modern history. Guided by an award-winning professor of philosophy and author, these eye-opening lectures reveal how political philosophers, in responding to the societal problems and changing conditions of their day in revolutionary ways, created virtual blueprints of action for leaders. You'll gain not only the tools to comprehend the omnipresent language of politics, but a thorough understanding of the wellspring of thought that has emerged over centuries of political philosophy and the intellectual origins of major historical movements and events.

    Throughout, questions of democracy, freedom, and distributive justice are addressed, and revolutionary figures who have left an indelible mark on history - from Niccolo Machiavelli to Ayn Rand - are encountered.

    By the conclusion of lecture 36, you will have the context necessary to appreciate the evolution of a myriad of political ideas, including hot-button topics of today such as libertarianism, neoconservatism, feminism, and environmentalism.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    Political philosophy

    A political philosophy course by Great Courses/Audible, it includes a detailed PDF. Several areas made me think and gave me a greater appreciation about why socialism came about and just how short a timespan is involved. It mainly covers since about 1700. It also is about philosophy and doesn't cover current US politics.

    Since I mainly interested in STEM, I never really thought about what this course covers. If you're in that camp, it's worth it.

    An Excellent Survey of Western Political Thought

    This is an excellent survey of the philosophical foundations of Western political thought. It covers not only the foundations of Western political thought (Plato and Aristotle) but also recent developments in western political thought (the animal rights movement and feminism). The explanations are clear, objective, and without a lot of philosophical jargon. At a certain point the standard becomes Liberal Republicanism and it is against this standard that other alternate theories are measured. That privileging of Liberal Republicanism seemed unnecessary to me. Yet when alternate theories are presented their critiques of Liberal Republicanism are presented as well. I will most certainly be listening to this book again. It's worth it.

    brilliant synopsis of political philosophy

    he covers a host of controversial topics from fascism to veganism without having an aparant bias and presenting their argument from their own point of view.

    He takes a deep dive into the history of political philosophy and applies various philosophical models to a broad spectrum of political topics.

    Excellent primer

    Having no background on the subject, I picked this book up to get a primer. In that capacity, it is an excellent book, covering political philosophy from the ancient greeks to modern society. Excellent and pleasant narration. Recommended!

    Interesting topic, somewhat dull narration

    The ideas and concepts in this course, as well as the material it covers, are fascinating. The course gives a bird's eye view of politics leading into our modern day situation and provides a thorough and balanced understanding of how we got to where we are.

    Professor Cahoone is clearly knowledgeable and has many good insights, but I did find his narration a bit monotonous. Unlike other Great Courses lecturers, he is clearly reading his notes with little improvisation or deviation from them. This might work well for some, but I prefer lecturers who are more animated. I think I may have zoned out for swaths of some lectures and would need to re-listen in order to fully absorb them.

    It's still a good course worth taking if you are interested in the material.

    Amazing. The Great Courses Continues to Triumph

    Wow! These lectures span eras of political thought with thorough and expansive explanations of each philosophical topic. The course kept me captivated and intrigued enough to inspire my own research on the topics after I completed it. I can't recommend this enough!

    Great Foundation in Modern Political Philosophy

    A great intro course for Modern Political Philosophy. Providing lectures on a wide range of notable thinkers such as Machiavelli, Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Kant. Smith, Montesquieu, Burke, Paine, Clausewitz, Hegel, Marx's, Schmitt, Hayek, Rawls, and others. The information in these lectures is almost essential to understanding much of modern political ideas and development. Beyond the first few lectures the timeline runs mid 17th century to the modern age.

    Although professor Cahoone's delivery can be slightly monotone at times, for the most part its easy to stay engaged and understand the material even if you have no background on the subject or political philosophy in general.

    An essential lecture serie for thinking people

    Even more essential than an American Civics class, this lecture series should be studied by any concerned citizen of any nation and anyone concerned with the "ideal", " practical" or good society. I highly recommend it. My only wish is that it would have had 45 minute lectures (and thus another 9+ hours). It was too short!

    Illuminating, entertaining overview

    As a politically naive 60-yo, I gained from Prof. Cahoone's course a tremendous sense of the history, foundation, and philosophy behind our postmodern political conundrum. From Plato and Aristotle through the Enlightenment to the Frankfurt School and multiculturalism, this survey provides a vocabulary and methodology for political thinking and discourse. Highly recommended for those who, like me, need a primer to participate in the crucial arguments of our time.

    Amazing lecture series

    A wonderful lecture series covering a wide range of topics, times, and perspectives.
    The lecture chapters are very well presented with the right level of detail for getting an overview of the field of political theory.
    Most impressive to me is the lecturer, who manages to keep a distance to all presented opinions and at the same time seems equally passionate when explaining them to the listener.
