POLS 250 Trailer... Part II

Monday I continue on with my year long intro theory course for some 250 students here at Queen's. This term we go from Rousseau through to Marx (having already covered Plato through to Hume in the Fall term).

I have found music and visual imagery to an effective way to tap the emotive sensibilities of my students and help sustain their interests (as well as my own!) over this year long theory course.

The trailer above is the intro for part 2 of the course, and it attempts to make vivid the importance of the study of ideas.
