1. Introduction: What is Political Philosophy?

Introduction to Political Philosophy (PLSC 114)

Professor Smith discusses the nature and scope of political philosophy. The oldest of the social sciences, the study of political philosophy must begin with the works of Plato and Aristotle, and examine in depth the fundamental concepts and categories of the study of politics. The questions which regimes are best? and what constitutes good citizenship? are posed and discussed in the context of Plato's Apology.

Tamar Gendler, Department of Philosophy Chair at Yale University, Cognitive Scientist

Who gets what and who says so? These two questions underlie and inform every social arrangement from the resolution of schoolyard squabbles to the meta-structure of human societies. They are also the basis of political philosophy. Professor Tamar Gendler uses the work of three titans of the discipline, Thomas Hobbes, John Rawls, and Robert Nozick, as a lens to guide us through the taut debate about the role of government in society, asking Will we embrace the radical state of nature or will we surrender our freedom to the leviathan of the state?

Harvey Mansfield thinks there is a difference between political philosophy and political science, though there ought not to be.

Question: Is there a difference between political philosophy and political science?
Harvey Mansfield: There oughtn't to be any difference, but in our age there certainly is.  Political science in its strictest form tries to imitate the natural science, and to be as exact and as universal and as nameless as they, and as objective as they are.  But political philosophy is much more concerned with the big questions than political science.  Political science, in order to be exact and universal, waves aside the big questions because the big questions don't seem to have clear and ... answers.  In fact, the political philosophers disagree as to what they are.  So political philosophy requires an effort of interpretation, of reading great books and trying to understand what they say; whereas political science is much easier.  It's just scientific communication from one scientist to another.  Both of them are on the same wavelength.  There's no need to introduce yourself.  There's no need for rhetoric.  There's no need for images.  There's no need for examples.  I'm talking about political science at its strictest.  Of course, most political science isn't that strict, but that's the idea of it.
