IDS 142W (EV) What is a Just Society? (1)

This course engages students in a consideration of justice and the role of justice in the construction of politics. We will ask: what is a just society and how might justice be attained? Beginning with Plato's Republic, the students will read philosophers and thinkers from across many centuries. The students will enter into considered discussion of the human quest for justice in the seminar, with invited speakers, and in campus forums.
