Course Description

An extended and reasonably sympathetic study of Rawl’s work on justice; and the seminar will have the additional advantage of running a close comparison of Rawl’s views on justice with those held (in spite of disavowals) by Marx. The seminar will also go into a comparison of their views on how to make the character of daily work self-fulfilling.

Grading Policy



Besides readings in texts by Rawls and Marx, a number of arresting secondary studies by G.A. Cohen, David Estlund, and D.B. will be scrutinized.
