About

Political philosophy forms that branch of philosophy that reflects on the specificity of the political. Why are humans, as Aristotle argued, political animals? How are they political? What are the means and ends of the political, and how best does one organize the political with such questions in mind? The Political Philosophy course from The American University of Paris offers a topic-oriented approach to the fundamental problems underlying political theory and practice.

The Political Philosophy course is offered at The American University of Paris.
