DD203 - Power, Dissent, Equality : Book 4 - Living Political Ideas

At last, some proper political ideas to get our teeth in to. This is what I'd hoped the course would be mostly about, but it has taken until book 4 to get to these ideas.

Just looking through the contents page gives a idea of what is coming up in the next couple of weeks, Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Hume, Bentham, Marx, Nozick and Rawls, some of who's ideas we already came across in the political philosophy part of the Philosophy course A222.

It has also helped with study that the snow has effectively limited other leisure activities, so today looks like being sat on the couch with a mug of coffee and Book 4 being read in between the two scheduled football matches.
