Course Delivery

Students will be able to complete the course asynchronously, but will be asked to participate if they can in some synchronous elements that will be scheduled Wednesday 13:35-14:25.

This course focuses on recognition as a guiding theme in nineteenth century social and political thought. By foregrounding related issues such as social and political visibility, equality, and mediated self-affirmation, students will be introduced to the tradition of modern political theory and will canvas some important early responses to Hegelian, liberal, and Marxist visions of individuals and society.
