Course Description Governing authority can be defined as the relationship between ruler and ruled in which the framing of issues, the myths and narrative history of the state, and the reasoned elaboration of the government's decision are accepted by the citizens of subjects of the state.  The crisis of authority occurs when this relationship is disrupted.  In this seminar we will examine such crises in Ancient Greece, Renaissance Western Europe, Twentieth Century United State, and post-communist Eastern Europe, through the writings of such authors as Plate, Machiavelli, Milton, Mill, de Tocqueville, King, and Michnik.
