AMER 483 Freedom and Philosophy in Anglo-America

Few words resonate in American culture more than "freedom" and "liberty". But from where do these concepts originate, and what exactly do they mean? Freedom for whom, and to do what? This course explores these questions by examining different theories of freedom and liberty in the early modern era, from the European Renaissance to the American Revolution. We link the development and growth of American political culture to social and intellectual movements including the Protestant Reformation, the English Civil Wars, the Scientific Revolution, and the Enlightenment. Credit units: 3 ECTS Credit units: None.
