Human rights lawyer Conor Gearty cites Plato’s Republic and Aristotle’s Politics taught in a UCD Politics course taught by Fr. Fergal O’Connor as the most inspiring books he read in university:
“Plato’s Republic and Aristotle’s Politics had such a dramatic impact on me that I tried to dump law and read politics”
Aristotle’s Politics is one of the texts in SPIRe’s Introduction to Political Theory: Models of Democracy module taught this semester.(POL 10020).
