Overview

Political Science shows the relation of politics to human nature and examines the basic alternatives in political life. The ordinary citizen has decent opinions about justice and the common good. The educated citizen should move from opinion toward knowledge and understanding, while maintaining good will, sincerity, tolerance, generosity and fairness. A political education in the liberal arts tradition equips students to analyze and criticize their country without becoming destructive of the common good or domestic tranquility.
