PHIL-125 Justice

This introductory course is a philosophical inquiry into the idea of justice. Rather than focusing on personal morality, we will investigate issues of public policy. How ought we, through our laws and institutions, distribute the benefits and burdens of society, income and wealth, duties and rights, powers and opportunities, offices and honors? Philosophical writings, as well as practical issues that illustrate competing theories of justice, will be investigated. 4 SH. CC: Ethics.
