So today’s talk was a little different from the others. It was a lot more like a standard political philosophy lecture than the applied ethics discussions that we normally get. As I have strong interests in political philosophy, the lecture was right up my alley, but I suspect some of you found it less interesting than I did. (But if you did find it interesting, do check out PHIL171: Justice. It’s offered every year and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in political theory, political philosophy, or ethics.)
I would like to open today’s discussion up to very broad issues that you might want to write about. Because Dr. Arnold’s talk was, in effect, about what a just society should look like, any post about a social issue will be sufficiently relevant. So feel free to write about the theory, but feel just as free to try to examine some concrete issues.
Thanks for a great quarter, and good luck on finals!
