When did politics begin? Aristotle, who introduced the term "political science," argues that politics begins with the appearance of human beings. But when was that? Barry Cooper contends that politics doesn't start with Greeks, or even the Egyptians and Mesopotamians. Instead, he probes the origins of politics though a discussion of Neanderthals and their art. Were Neanderthals human? What does their art mean? Join us for a talk on VERY EARLY political symbols! The event is sponsored by the Eric Voegelin Institute, LSU's Department of Political Science, and ISI at LSU. Students, faculty, and general public cordially invited.
