PL 4650 - Philosophy of Justice

(PS 4650)
This course examines classical and contemporary views of the meaning of justice for both individuals and societies. The question of justice engages us across all dimensions of human life- the personal and spiritual, the social and political, the economic and environmental spheres of existence-and it accordingly demands that we explore philosophical, ethical, and political frameworks in trying to understand its nature and requirements. Major themes addressed in the course include but are not limited to theories of justice, global justice, fairness and inequality, race and gender, environmental justice, and just social orders and political action.

Prerequisite: PL 1100  or PL 1150 .
