Primary Instructor:

I love you….I want justice….Have I treated you fairly?….Can we be friends?....You have no right to do that….It is the just thing to do….Let justice roll down like waters….All you need is love….All is fair in love….Justice is blind….Love is blind…. In this course we will undertake a philosophical inquiry into two elemental virtues of human togetherness: love and justice — separately, in harmony, and in tension. Drawing upon philosophical texts as well as expressions of love and justice in various texts, music, drama, and art, we will endeavor to think through love and justice in our own lives, our public and personal situations, our own societies, our own bondings. And we will ask: can life be worth living without love or justice or both? This course is part of the Fall 2010 Theme Semester, What Makes Life Worth Living?
