JCIV 462 - Political Intelligence
The only way to know if one would be successful in politics is to enter politics. Successes in other fields do not translate into success in politics and cannot serve as predictors of how one will do once one is in politics. Politics requires its own kind of intelligence that should be added to the list of human intelligences as its own category - “Political Intelligence”. The course will reflect on what is exactly the nature of this “political intelligence”, how is it manifested and could it be learnt. It will do so by exploring historical and current political personalities and situations, texts on political philosophy and human psychology and will draw on Dr. Wilf’s personal experiences in the always intense and never forgiving Israeli parliament. This course is taught by Dr. Einat Wilf, Visiting Goldman Israeli Professor, Author and former member of the Israeli Parliament (Knesset).
