Philosophers have always asked fundamental and disturbing questions about politics. Plato and Aristotle debated the merits of democracy. Hobbes, Rousseau, Hegel, Marx and many other philosophers have explored the origins of society, the state and government authority. Political Philosophy: A Graphic Guide explains the central concepts of this intriguing branch of philosophy and presents the major political theorists from Plato to Foucault. How did governments get started? Why should they be obeyed? Could we live without them? How much power should they have? Is freedom a right? Which is the best form of government? In the wake of consumerism and postmodernism, our need for a better grasp of political ideas is greater than ever. Dave Robinson's account of this complex subject is clear, informative and accompanied by Judy Groves' entertainingly inventive illustrations. This series of graphic guides covers every key thinker and topic in philosophy, psychology, science, politics, religion, cultural studies, linguistics and more. Written by experts and illustrated by leading graphic artists, there is no better way to acquaint yourself with the biggest and best ideas humanity has ever come up with.
