Abstract: This course will engage us in what may very well be the most important human activity: political philosophy. Political philosophy pursues methodical answers to the two fundamental quandaries human beings must face: How ought we to live? How can we make that idea of the good life a practical reality? Unless we assume that human beings can be reshaped at will, both of these questions require an investigation of human nature: of the true good and happiness we should pursue and of the rational, selfish, and passionate elements of our nature that make all political practice a perilous enterprise
