Class approach l.jpg
Class Approach

  • We all know bits and pieces of why Politics is in our life – but as a nation we hold politics to be a barely necessary evil. In this class we will return to the works of the contract theorists and speak to the need for government, its core purpose why and how the states have evolved to meet that need.
