More on “Justice”
To help keep up with my classes, I have decided to post about the readings and some of the videos that we are using in my classes. I am detailing each class on it’s own page, separate from the other books I am reading.
The course, Justice, is offered through edX and HarvardX. The course description states:
“Justice is a critical analysis of classical and contemporary theories of justice, including discussion of present-day applications. Topics include affirmative action, income distribution, same-sex marriage, the role of markets, debates about rights (human rights and property rights), arguments for and against equality, dilemmas of loyalty in public and private life. The course invites students to subject their own views on these controversies to critical examination.
“The principal readings for the course are texts by Aristotle, John Locke, Immanuel Kant, John Stuart Mill, and John Rawls. Other assigned readings include writings by contemporary philosophers, court cases, and articles about political controversies that raise philosophical questions.”
