SEMINAR II: The Politics of Recognition and Political Philosophy: This seminar explores notions of democratic citizenship, civic virtue, and civic republicanism in the context of the multicultural of the Central Valley. Key Questions: How do different interests and identities clash, negotiate, and accommodate each other within the context of a modern liberal nation state? How do community-based notions of the “self” compete with an unencumbered or individualistic notion of self? Should modern citizens accept and welcome a wide range of different and often competing conceptions of the good life? Are appeals to civic virtue disinterested appeals or are such appeals used to promote one’s favored conception of justice in a diverse society? MJC Faculty Organizer: Bill Anelli.
