Emotions in Political Theory
This course will examine selected texts in the history of political thought to explore the development of the conceptualisation of the nature of the emotions and of their place in politics. We also will look at contemporary debates concerning the need to offer a more positive assessment of the place of emotions in politics. Authors studied will include: Cicero, Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Hume, Nussbaum, Solomon and Hall.
