According to Aristotle, humans are political animals. We only exist in and through political communities. How do we organise ourselves as communities? Who has power in these communities and how is it used? Do our communities lead us to ever greater forms of freedom and liberty or do we create the conditions for our own continued domination and subjection? This course at Salford is dedicated to examining the most central and critical questions regarding our political world and its pasts and futures. It differs from other courses in its critical emphasis, wide range of module options, and smaller class sizes.
