133. ACE 015: Social Science Seminar I

Contact:Richard Adams
Abstract:ACE 015 is a study of the history of ideas in Western civilization from
classical antiquity through the Renaissance, from the perspectives of the
disciplines of history, philosophy, and related social sciences. Through an
analysis of sources, both original and secondary, emphasis will be placed on
political developments, philosophical trends, religious movements, and social
institutions. The course aims to promote an accurate understanding of these
matters, reflection on issues relating to them, and good written articulation
of both. There will be assignments to a history of Western civilization and
assignments to original sources from the periods covered by the course. ACE
015 fulfills Queens CollegeŠ„s general education requirement under the
Cultures and Values heading of Perspectives on the Liberal Arts and
Sciences, for it examines in historical perspective contrasting ideas of value
and contrasting views as to the attainability of knowledge in ethics, political
theory, and religion. Representing as it does key liberal arts, especially
history and philosophy, ACE 015 further aims to develop general intellectual
capacities such as reason and judgment, as having value on their own account
and for society at large.
