POT3515: Good and Evil: Political Perspectives 3
This course will examine extreme political action, behaviors, and policy effects which are labeled as "evil" or "good." Students will examine what these terms mean in political contexts, how these terms are applied, and what activates individuals, movements, and governments to engage in such behaviors. Examples such as terrorism, the Holocaust, institutionalized social and political inequalities, as well as positive programs to eradicate disease and hunger, or international intervention on behalf of human rights will be used as case studies to explore these concepts.
