Fall 2013 Seminar
Meets: W 5:00pm - 7:00pm in WCC Room 3008
2 classroom credits

This seminar will explore some of the ways in which philosophical analysis and discussions of what the law is and ought to be can enrich one another, with a special focus on moral issues involving law and government policy. Students in the seminar will write frequent short papers, focused on weekly readings, as well as a longer paper at the end. For roughly half of the weeks, the readings will be drafts of works-in-progress by philosophers, political theorists, and law professors who will present their work in the seminar.
