Dec. 1 - What Is Ideology?

In our challenging post-election environment, being able to effectively communicate our ideas and concerns to those with whom we disagree is crucial. Political beliefs are not always grounded upon straightforward, easy-to-discuss reasons; they are sometimes grounded upon deeper ideological commitments. How can we clarify and assess ideological commitments? What is ideology? At this Philosophy for Lunch we will take the modest first step of thinking about what ideology is. We'll read and discuss passages by contemporary political philosophers. 

Thursdays - 11:45–12:45 PM

Schmitt Hall, room 242 (the Philosophy department seminar room)

What is P4L?
Students and professors close-read and discuss a few of the greatest passages in the history of philosophy.

Who's invited?
No preparation or previous knowledge of philosophy is needed. Everyone is welcome!

Should I bring anything?
Bring a beverage, and if you're hungry, bring your actual lunch.
