An examination of the philosophical nature of resistance, with a focus on social and political dimensions of revolutionary violence, non-violence and civil disobedience. We will consider underlying conditions (e.g., social economic, political, ideological) and multiple forms of injustice that bring about nonviolent and violent resistance. The first half of the course features theoretical perspectives on violence, nonviolence, and resistance, which the latter part explores connections between oppression, privilege, and resistance, and applies resistance strategies to various forms of injustice.
