PHIL 332. Social and Economic Justice

This course will begin an examination of various theories of justice. A liberal view like that of John Rawls, a libertarian view like that of Robert Nozick and a socialist view like that of Karl Marx will be carefully examined. The second part of the course will be spent examining and discussing various case studies. We will consider how our understanding of different theories of justice can help us resolve the conflicts and disputes that arise in these case studies. Also, some attention will be paid to contemporary critiques of American society.
