SPS 101 Humanity and Society I 3 Credits
Combining elements of social and economic anthropology with the history of political thought,the Humanity and society course at Sabanc University is both more dense in content, and analytical rather than narrative in approach.As against a smooth evolutionary continuity,it visualizes development and progress more in terms of a step -function of discrete (hunting-gathering,agricultural,and industrial) thresholds. These represent the material -technical limits of the possible,setting agendas and posing problems ,to which social formations are perceived as responding with not just one but a whole range of institutional solutions,each with its own mode(s) of ideological legitimation.Such combinations of forms of production,coercion and persuasion are further conceptualized as being nurtured in different environments and/or distinct cultural traditions.The two lectures per week are more contextual in character,while selected political -philosophical texts are taken up in the discussion section.
