    Last Few Places
    Course start date:  Tue 16 Apr 2024

    Location on this date:  Keeley Street

    Tutors:  Christian Michel
    We groan against bosses, berate politicians, demonstrate against most aspects of the social system, and then humbly take our orders from above. Is obedience imprinted in our genes? How submissive must people be for society to function? In this short course we will discuss the politics of obedience – drawing on psychology, anthropology, history, and political philosophy.
