PL 399 - Anthropology of Slavery

(3.00 cr.)

The most frequently used argument against slavery is "slaves are human beings." The course turns this statement into a question: What does it mean to be human if slavery is or was possible? The phenomenon of slavery, therefore, is taken as a touchstone concerning the consistency of a philosophy of humanity.

Prerequisite: PL 201  and one additional PL 200-level course.
Interdisciplinary Studies: IAF/IPJ
