Is the world a better place today than it was fifty years ago?  Will it be better yet in another fifty years?  We cannot answer such questions without asking what we mean by "better," that is, what counts as progress.  The question of what progress is cannot be answered simply: the term has been used in different ways at differemt times and has also been the subject of much critical examination.  We will explore the meaning of progress by engaging with a variety of thought-provoking and influential works. 

Fall semester. Professors George, Shah, Worsley and Douglas.
