In this workshop we'll be exploring the idea of justice as fairness -- a position advanced by the late philosopher John Rawls.  The workshop will be introductory and will discuss justice through the lens of equity and fairness -- two critical features of Rawls' theory of justice -- and the dynamics of Rawls' arguments and their implications.  Competing perspectives and modern day comparisons on justice will also be explored, as will discussion about the intellectual climate within which Rawls' contributions to philosophy arose. Learn more and register for this Zoom workshop here!
