A Study of Western Political Thoughts By Dr Sultan Khan

A Study of Western Political Thoughts By Dr Sultan Khan. Western political thought has served as a philosophical and ideological foundation for governments around the world, including the United States. We give you historical, social, and cultural context to relate to contemporary political society. Although in antiquity great civilizations arose in Egypt and Mesopotamia, in the Indus Valley, and in China, there was little speculation about the problems of political philosophy as formulated in the West. The Code of Hammurabi (c. 1750 BCE) consists of rules propounded by the Babylonian ruler Hammurabi as a representative of God on Earth and is mainly concerned with order, trade, and irrigation; the Maxims of Ptahhotep (c. 2300 BCE) contains shrewd advice from the Egyptian vizier on how to prosper in a bureaucracy; and the Artha-sastra of Kautilya, grand vizier to Chandragupta Maurya in the late 4th century BCE, is a set of Machiavellian precepts on how to survive under an arbitrary power. To be sure, the Buddhist concept of dharma (social custom and duty), which inspired the Indian emperor Ashoka in the 3rd century BCE, implies a moralization of public power, and the teachings of Confucius in the 6th century BCE are a code of conduct designed to stabilize society, but there is not, outside Europe, much speculation about the basis of political obligation and the purpose of the state, with both of which Western political philosophy is mainly concerned. An authoritarian society is taken for granted, backed by religious sanctions, and a conservative and arbitrary power is generally accepted.
