    What is politics?

    37:46

    This lecture comes from Introduction to Comparative Politics, which I teach almost every semester. In this particular lecture, I answer the question: What is politics?

    Introduction to Comparative Politics has no prerequisites. It's required for political science majors at Wabash College, but is ideal for any student seeking to satisfy the behavioral science distribution requirement or for anyone with an interest in politics.

    Notes:
    1) Typos and other possible errors in the transcription of questions and comments in the Q&A portion of the clip do not originate from me!

    2) The original Q&A period contained a greater number of questions and audience statements but the clip's editor made the editorial decision of which to keep and which to delete.

    3) The original clip was of a much higher resolution but I had to transform it to ensure a quicker upload on YouTube.

    4) At two points in my lecture (toward the end), I refer to a formatting error with the numbering of items (on the particular slides). However, you'll note that the numbering on the slides in question is shown correctly in the clip. This is because I was reading off my Powerpoint slides during the lecture (which yielded formatting errors between my Mac and the computer in the lecture hall) however the slides shown in the clip stem from the pdf versions of the original slides (i.e., no formatting errors).

    1. Introduction: What is Political Philosophy?

    37:06

    Introduction to Political Philosophy (PLSC 114)

    Professor Smith discusses the nature and scope of political philosophy. The oldest of the social sciences, the study of political philosophy must begin with the works of Plato and Aristotle, and examine in depth the fundamental concepts and categories of the study of politics. The questions which regimes are best? and what constitutes good citizenship? are posed and discussed in the context of Plato's Apology.

    Politics and the First World War - Professor Sir Richard Evans

    58:00

    The First World War put unprecedented strains on the economic, social and political systems of all the combatant nations. A year after the war ended, the Great European Empires had collapsed, and new, extremist ideologies, from fascism to communism, had emerged to disturb the postwar political world.
    This lecture explores the reasons for the radical political changes that made the First World War the seminal catastrophe of twentieth-century Europe.


    The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website:

    Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. There are currently over 1,700 lectures free to access or download from the website.

    2015 Castle Lectures - Africa, A Half-Century of Dysfunctional Politics

    1:38:03

    The 2015 Castle Lectures - Africa: The Last Frontier for Development – Lecture 2: A Half-Century of Dysfunctional Politics
    Africa has lagged the rest of the developing world in terms of economic development, health, the establishment of social order, and the consolidation of democracy. For development outcomes, compared to other regions of the world, Africa is the “last frontier”. This lecture series will first survey the dimensions of development failures, and then will identify the historical and political sources accounting for this lag. Finally, it will point to some hopeful trends.

    Politics as Vocation in Cicero and Burke, A Lecture by Mary Ann Glendon 11-1-2011

    50:05

    Drawing its title from the celebrated essay Politics as Vocation by German social theorist Max Weber, Mary Ann Glendon—one of America's leading public intellectuals—considers the lives and thought of the Roman statesman and philosopher Cicero and the Anglo-Irish parliamentarian and philosopher Edmund Burke from the perspective of her book The Forum and the Tower: How Scholars and Politicians Have Imagined the World, from Plato to Eleanor Roosevelt.

    As Aristotle noted long ago, two very different and sometimes incompatible ways of life—the political and the philosophical—exert a powerful pull on the ambitious and talented members of any society. Mary Ann Glendon, who teaches at Harvard Law School, says that she sees this double attraction in her students. Some go into politics, but many turn away, fearful of the compromises and corruptions of power. Such students may go on to become teachers and scholars, but they never quite give up on the idea of 'making a difference' in the wider, public world, even if they aren't quite sure how to do it. Ms. Glendon's The Forum and the Tower profiles 12 figures in Western history who struggled—not always successfully—with the conflict between an active life and a contemplative one, between 'life in the public forum and life in the ivory tower.'... The Forum and the Tower is a wise exploration of the eternal tension between action and thought.— Brian C. Anderson, The Wall Street Journal

    Mary Ann Glendon is Learned Hand Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, and is a former United States Ambassador to the Vatican. She holds A.B., J.D., and M.C.L. degrees from the University of Chicago. In 2004, Pope John Paul II named her as the first woman to serve as President of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences. Her books include Rights Talk: The Impoverishment of Political Discourse, A Nation Under Lawyers, and A World Made New: Eleanor Roosevelt and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

    The 2012 CLARK KERR LECTURES - The Dynamics Ramify: Academic Politics, Conflict and Inequality

    1:18:20

    The 2012 CLARK KERR LECTURES
    Lecture 2: The Dynamics Ramify: Academic Politics, Conflict and Inequality

    The second lecture extends the first. Among the consequences of a history of accretions is a structured inflexibility--a limited ability to respond to demographic changes, economic fluctuations, and competitors for resources. Even more profound consequences are found in the managerial implications for college and university management and politics. Accretion generates more complex and unmanageable organizations and multiplies the numbers and types of internal and external constituencies. These have transformed leadership and politics in academic life, including the tradition of shared faculty governance. The lecturer also analyses the cumulative impact of accretions on the prestige hierarchies both among research and collegiate institutions and among academic disciplines. The crisis of the humanities is given special attention.
    ~~~
    The lecture series was established in 2001 under the auspices of the Center for Studies in Higher Education on the Berkeley campus. Initial funding for the lectures was provided by the University of California's Office of the President, and subsequently major complementary funding has been received from the Carnegie Corporation. The Center for Studies in Higher Education has established an agreement with the University of California Press for publication of the second and future lectures.

    The 2012 Clark Kerr lecturer will be Neil Smelser, one of the most distinguished and accomplished leaders of American Higher Education and recognized as a profound observer of higher education. He joined the UC Berkeley faculty in 1958 and has authored eighteen books, including Theory of Collective Behavior. He is a University Professor Emeritus of Sociology for the University of California. His distinguished career has been entirely at the Berkeley campus except for a period in which he was Director of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford. His research has focused on what he calls the macroscopic social structural level of social life, including economic sociology, social change, social movements, and the sociology of education. He is also a trained psychoanalyst. His most recent book, published by the University of California Press in 2010, is Reflections on the University of California: From the Free Speech Movement to the Global University. Smelser is a former president of the American Sociological Association, a member of the National Academy of Sciences, and a member of the American Philosophical Society.

    Professor Smelser's three lectures in the series will be given January 24th and 31st, and February 7th, 2012, on the Berkeley campus, with the third lecture also being given February 14th on the Riverside campus. His subject is Higher Education: The Play of Continuity and Crisis. In the lectures he will present a general view of social change, especially in universities, and interpret contemporary problems, controversies, and enigmas.

    The three lectures are scheduled for:

    * January 24, 4 pm, UC Berkeley Art Museum
    * January 31, 4 pm, UC Berkeley Art Museum
    * February 7, 4 pm, UC Berkeley Art Museum, repeated on February 14 at UC Riverside.

    The series honors Clark Kerr, who served as president of the university between 1958 and 1967. Lectures are given at one or more of the university's ten campuses. Kerr headed the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education and then the Carnegie Council on Policy Studies in Higher Education from 1967 until 1979. He came to UC Berkeley in 1945 as an associate professor of industrial relations and was chancellor at Berkeley from 1952 until 1958.

    Recipients of the honor are selected once every two years and are sponsored by Center for Studies in Higher Education (CSHE).

    Steve Bannon Lays Out His AMAZING Political Philosophy

    24:31

    Speech by Stephen K. Bannon (Steve Bannon), Donald Trump's senior strategic advisor and architect of his winning 2016 election. In this speech delivered to the Liberty Restoration Foundation, Bannon layed out the poliitical philosophy both he and Trump embrace, and which appealed to the American people in the election. It is conservative, perhaps explaining why the political liberal left has resorted to evidently incorrect allegations of antisemitism or racism to try to derail his appointment. Bannon was a Hollywood producer who invested in the Seinfeld comedy TV series, and later became the chair of the Brietbart News Service, expanding it into one of the leading news sources nationally, as an alternative to liberal media outlets that previously dominated US media. He joined the Trump campaign in June 2016, leading him to victory and the White House. Do you think that Bannon is racist, as the democrats have alleged?

    Justice: Whats The Right Thing To Do? Episode 01 THE MORAL SIDE OF MURDER

    54:57

    To register for the 2015 course, visit

    PART ONE: THE MORAL SIDE OF MURDER
    If you had to choose between (1) killing one person to save the lives of five others and (2) doing nothing even though you knew that five people would die right before your eyes if you did nothing—what would you do? What would be the right thing to do? Thats the hypothetical scenario Professor Michael Sandel uses to launch his course on moral reasoning. After the majority of students votes for killing the one person in order to save the lives of five others, Sandel presents three similar moral conundrums—each one artfully designed to make the decision more difficult. As students stand up to defend their conflicting choices, it becomes clear that the assumptions behind our moral reasoning are often contradictory, and the question of what is right and what is wrong is not always black and white.

    PART TWO: THE CASE FOR CANNIBALISM

    Sandel introduces the principles of utilitarian philosopher, Jeremy Bentham, with a famous nineteenth century legal case involving a shipwrecked crew of four. After nineteen days lost at sea, the captain decides to kill the weakest amongst them, the young cabin boy, so that the rest can feed on his blood and body to survive. The case sets up a classroom debate about the moral validity of utilitarianism—and its doctrine that the right thing to do is whatever produces the greatest good for the greatest number.

    Devin Stauffer, Associate Professor of Government, University of Texas, talks about English philosopher and author of Leviathan, Thomas Hobbes (March 4, 2015).

    Professor Stauffer specializes in classical and early modern political philosophy.

He is the author of Plato's Introduction to the Question of Justice (SUNY, 2001), coauthor and cotranslator of Empire and the Ends of Politics: Plato's Menexenus and Pericles' Funeral Oration (Focus Philosophical Library, 1999), and author of The Unity of Plato's Gorgias: Rhetoric, Justice, and the Philosophic Life (Cambridge, 2006).

    How Political Power Uses Propaganda to Distract the Public: Noam Chomsky - Manufacturing Consent

    2:38:07

    Necessary Illusions: Thought Control in Democratic Societies is a 1989 book by US academic Noam Chomsky concerning political power using propaganda to distort and distract from major issues to maintain confusion and complicity, preventing real democracy from becoming effective. The title of this book borrows a phrase from the writings of Reinhold Niebuhr.

    Nearly the entire first half of the book is based on Chomsky's five 1988 Massey Lectures on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio from November 1988 and extends his and Edward S. Herman's propaganda model to a variety of new situations. The remaining appendices address criticisms of the work and provide additional detail.

    As a genre of political thought, parallels exist between Niebuhr's necessary illusions and the noble lies of Leo Strauss, public relations of Edward Bernays and myth making of Niccolò Machiavelli. Likewise, Chomsky's analyses in Necessary Illusions represent a refocus on the use of these patterns of power, which he implies to underscore the failure of populations - particularly in a representative democracy - to learn from history in this regard.

    Two incompatible sacred values in American universities Jon Haidt, Hayek Lecture Series

    1:6:23

    On October 6, 2016, Professor Jonathan Haidt gave a Hayek Lecture at Duke. The event was co-sponsored by the programs in the History of Political Economy (HOPE), Philosophy, Politics, & Economics (PPE), and American Values and Institutions (AVI). The event was open to the public, but also served as a guest lecture in Professor Jonathan Anomaly’s PPE course.
    Professor Haidt argues that conflicts arise at many American universities today because they are pursuing two potentially incompatible goals: truth and social justice. While Haidt thinks both goals are important, he maintains that they can come into conflict.
    According to some versions of social justice, whenever we observe a disparity of outcomes between races, genders, or other groups, we should infer that injustice has been done. Haidt challenges this view of social justice and shows how it sometimes leads to violations of truth, and even justice.
    Haidt concludes that universities should be free to pursue whatever goals – truth or social justice – they want, but that they should make it clear which of these two goals is their “telos” – their highest purpose. He ends with a discussion of his initiative, HeterodoxAcademy.org, to bring more viewpoint diversity to universities in order to improve research and learning.
