The Political Animal

Wednesday, (one day) Fee: $4 “Human nature” is a term frequently appealed to in political rhetoric, but political philosophers differ greatly as to what they take the content of human nature to be and as to what limits they believe this nature imposes on the political realm. Accounts range from the rigid and pessimistic “realism” of Hobbes and Machiavelli, who place security above the morality, to the hopeful belief in the malleability of human nature one finds in Rousseau, Marx and later socialist utopians who propose radical political alternatives. This course consults political philosophy, anthropology, evolutionary psychology, and biology to better understand the defining characteristics of human nature and to chart out the bounds, as well as the possibilities, that human nature affords us. We will utilize this understanding to evaluate which political regimes are most compatible with this nature and which ones aren't.

Big Read: The Maltese Falcon

Spade and Archer is the name of a San Francisco detective agency. That's for Sam Spade and Miles Archer. The two men are partners, but Sam doesn't like Miles much. A knockout, who goes by the name of Miss Wanderly, walks into their office; and by that night everything's changed. Miles is dead. And so is a man named Floyd Thursby. It seems Miss Wanderly is surrounded by dangerous men. There's Joel Cairo, who uses gardenia-scented calling cards. There's Kasper Gutman, with his enormous girth and feigned civility. Her only hope of protection comes from Sam, who is suspected by the police of one or the other murder. More murders are yet to come, and it will all be because of these dangerous men -- and their lust for a statuette of a bird: the Maltese Falcon.
