Abstract:

Interdisciplinary approaches can be used to deepen an understanding of disciplinary content in the undergraduate classroom. The introduction of a tragic work like King Lear into a political theory curriculum can enhance an appreciation of classical liberalism’s complexity. Drawing upon Aristotle’s theory of tragedy, this paper argues that an engagement with a work like King Lear can help students identify movement and voice—similar to what Aristotle termed peripety and discovery—within texts and then apply such skills and accomplish a more complex reading of Hobbes and Locke.
