GOVT 86.20 Ideology and Intellectuals

What is ideology?  Who, if anyone, is responsible for creating it?  And can we live without it?  Beginning with its origins in Enlightenment science, this course will trace the development of the concept of "ideology" through the 19th and 20th centuries, paying special attention to the role that intellectuals have been said to play in the formation, dissemination, maintenance, criticism, and dissolution of ideological systems.  Authors will include Marx, Gramsci, Mannheim, Kuhn, Skinner, Bell, Althusser, Habermas, and Foucault. 



Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:SOC; WCult:W

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
