The problem of justice occupies a special place in contemporary
political philosophy. In the words of its most influential figure,
Rawls, "justice is the first virtue of social institutions". That view
seems to be shared by a majority of authors and theories. However, there
is no comparable agreement regarding what justice demands, from whom and
to whom. These questions have utmost relevance for political
philosophers. However, their importance spill over other disciplines.
Given that many choices policy makers make are distributive in nature,
it is not surprising that issues of justice appear in many other
spheres. In addition to dealing with purely theoretical issues, the
course will revise some contexts which raise important questions about
justice: education, health care, environmental issues, taxation.

Applications are invited from graduate students, postdocs, young
faculty in Philosophy, Political Science, Public Policy, Law and
Economics, familiar with Anglo-American political theory, especially
with theories of justice.

Application deadline: February 15, 2011
