Description

Liberalism, Conservatism, Authoritarianism, Progressivism, Sexism, Racism, Feminism, Masculinism, Capitalism, Socialism, Communism... our language is filled with many broad sweeping terms that seem both to express so much but to explain very little. How do they differ, and what do they have in common?  What do the terms actually refer, and what do they not? In this course we unpack and explore many of these words/concepts, and discuss many of the philosophical issues with which they each have to contend.

Michael Couch has been teaching community education courses for over a decade. With an academic background in Philosophy, Classical Studies, Education and History, he recently completed his PhD in the History of Philosophy of Education in New Zealand. He enjoys learning new topics, and incorporates passion and wry humour into all the courses he teaches.
