Odyssey: Leadership: Philosophy, Politics, and Business

Should the chosen few (in any society) rule the masses? History has answered in the affirmative. Since antiquity, the fundamental human qualities required for leadership have been examined and explored in science and technology from many eclectic perspectives. For example, according to Plato, only philosophers should be leaders. The contemporary culture of entrepreneurship places great value in innovation leadership (e.g., Gates, and Silicon Valley billionaires). U.S. universities openly declare their mission to educate students to become leaders. In this course we analyze and discuss a great variety of writings on leadership, and each participant will have the opportunity to express and debate their own personal view on the matter.
