Political Philosophy

Explore the dynamic realm of politics by thoughtfully engaging with your preferred ideologies and confront compelling arguments in favor of opposing viewpoints.

In this course, students delve into three key ideologies shaping Indian politics: liberalism, nationalism, and Marxism. The aim is to help students develop a more thoughtful engagement with politics, considering challenges to their preferred ideologies and confronting strong arguments in favour of the ideologies they oppose. Concrete political issues in the Indian context, including hate speech, reservations, secession, the uniform civil code, and the right to work, serve as practical entry points for exploring these ideologies.
