In this seminar we will explore some key concepts in contemporary political philosophy, including justice, equality, democracy, and rights. Topics will include the metrics of distributive justice, the relation between justice and equality, and tensions between democracy and rights. The course has no prerequisites, though previous coursework in political theory or philosophy would be helpful.
This course is cross-listed with School of Law " Foundations of Political Philosophy "
The first class meeting will be on Thursday January 20
Location: seminar room 102. 2240 Piedmont Ave.
