Catalog Number: 1334
Half course (spring term).
Tu., 2–4.
EXAM GROUP: 16, 17

This course focuses on recent debates in political philosophy about social and political justice. How is justice related to different conceptions of human nature? How is it connected to ideas such as community, rights, and the good? The course will have a particular focus on recent work dealing with justice and the claims made on behalf of social groups such as minority cultures, and the consequences of the exclusion or inclusion of these claims in our thinking about justice.
