PhilosophyPHIL 151 Modern Theories of Justice

Questions of social and distributive justice are as ancient as Aristotle; yet, modern philosophy, with its developing notions of democracy and quality, has added much sophistication and subtlety to these questions, especially since the publication of John Rawls' A Theory of Justice (1971). Issues discussed include: personal relations, concept of community, the notion of the State, and global justice.
