Course Summary
Language and politics are closely related. This is true in the obvious sense that language use is central to the practice of politics – to all political debate and persuasion, and to the construction of arguments that we call ‘political’. But it is also true in the less obvious sense that philosophical debates about the nature of language have played an important role in the study of politics. People who believe that the study of politics can and should be ‘scientific’, have frequently tried to find, or create, an ‘analytical’ language about politics that is free from the ‘bias’, ‘prejudice’ and conflictual ‘ideology’ of the language used in politics. And people who are more skeptical about the possibility of creating a political science (or a social science more generally) have often doubted whether such a ‘scientific’ language of politics, or of society, can be created.
