PHIL379 - POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY: Topics in Political Philosophy
Topics in Justice: This is a seminar course, and our discussions will draw on some of the basic questions of justice as these arise in both the domestic and global contexts. Questions such as: Does distributive equality matter? Is distributive equality global in scope? To what subjects or entities do principles of jsutice apply? What are the limits of toleration? Students will be required to do regular class presentations. Authors we will read include John Rawls, Charles Beitz, G.A. Cohen, Thomas Pogge and others.
