PHL 300

Philosophy and Nonviolence

Lecture, 3 Credit Hours

This course is intended to introduce students to the idea and the development of the idea of principled nonviolence and to investigate in general terms how the idea of nonviolence has developed and changed over time. Students will explore the leaders and the ideas of nonviolence as representing an important, but often overlooked and undervalued American tradition. The purpose of this class, then, is to trace and reclaim that tradition.
