Together we can ruin the world or make it better. The purpose of politics is said to be the latter – to enable us to care for interests that we share in common and foster effective citizenship through civic engagement. By examining various definitions of “politics” and applying them to the current events, this course is intended to reflect on how important collective goals can be achieved and what obstacles, endemic to “politics,” get in the way of achieving them.
This course is eligible for honors credit through Hutton Honors College.
