Title: Justice, Virtue, and Duty
Course Section Number: CLA-211-01
Department: Classics
Description: By reading canonical texts of Greek and Roman political thought, we will examine and critique competing conceptions of justice, virtue and social duty. We will analyze the work of philosophers, statesmen, and even an emperor to explore the earliest roots of contemporary politics. This class will ask questions like: What is the ideal regime? What is the most practical regime? What are the duties of citizenship? Can service to the state make us happy?
