POLS 337 - Power and the State


This course deliberates on the natures of Power and the State and consults with a select number of modern political thinkers accordingly. We begin with thinking about the philosophical and sociological meanings of power that include concepts such as authority, control, interest and influence. The contrast between power and violence, the democratic ideal of rationalizing the use of power through public communicative actions, a class-based definition of power, power as social privilege and finally, a feminist understanding of power signify our other steps in this study.
