Transcript Title: POLITICAL IDEAS 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Lower Division 
Course Description: This course surveys important concepts and ideas in political thinking, with particular attention to the major traditions of Western political thought from Machiavelli to 20th century political theory. It emphasizes core concepts such as sovereignty, power, liberty, democracy, equality, and how these concepts have framed political debates within the Western tradition. While some of the focus is on the original form and contestation of these ideas in their historical context, there is a strong emphasis on how these initial debates led into more recent, 20th century political thinking and problems. Students investigate how these concepts have been taken up in ideological formations, which include liberalism, Marxism, and conservatism.
