PHIL 114 Spring 2014 Freedom and Society (W)

Freedom is one of our fundamental values as Americans. It is emphasized in our founding documents, and it remains central in our contemporary political discourse. But do we ask: What is freedom? and Why do we value it? In this course, we will consider these questions by reading Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. We will then turn to the question: Do we achieve freedom for all in our society today? We will read G.W.F Hegel and Karl Marx on the issue of whether workers are free, and Simone de Beauvoir on whether women are free.
