What Is Justice?
From presidential campaign slogans, to tv shows, to Facebookposts, to protestors' signs, today's public discourse in theUnited States is awash with references to justice. But what isjustice? Do people agree on what it means? What goes into themaking of a just policy? What would a just society look like? Andwhat about injustice? Is it merely an absence of justice or is itsomething else? How do unjust practices become systemic? And whydoes art (imaginative literature, film) tend to explore injusticerather than justice and can it help us correct or refine acceptedconceptions of justice? We will read about and discuss theseissues in preparation for writing, in several installments, asubstantial research-based paper on a relevant topic of yourchoice.
