Public policy and administration history and traditions
In this Discussion, you will analyze the influence of seminal thinkers and events on public policy and administration concepts and processes. Dwight Toavs’ Timeline on Ideas of Governance is designed to “foster an appreciation of the evolution and development of ideas that constitute contemporary governance.” Spanning over 2,000 years, the timeline illustrates the ways political philosophers “build on the works of their predecessors, crafting arguments for or against those ideas, or modifying them to incorporate and justify new insights” (Toavs, n.d.). This overview of the history and traditions of public policy and administration should provide the foundation for the development of your research ideas, plans, and processes in this field.
To prepare for this Discussion:
- Review Toavs’ Ideas of Governance timeline, located in the Learning Resources.
- Select three political philosophers and/or events and search for scholarly articles on each topic.
Post by Day 4 a paragraph on each political philosopher and/or event, expanding on the chronologies with peer-reviewed journal articles. Analyze the influence each of these seminal thinkers and/or events has had on the public policy and administration concepts and processes with which society is governed today. Explain the reasons you came to these conclusions.
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
