In this philosophy walk led by Ed Glowienka we explored justice as through the lens of fairness, freedom/responsibility, and equity — aspects of justice advanced by the late philosopher John Rawls. While a summary of Rawls’ views were provided at the outset, as well as some of his working principles along the way, the bulk of our meandering was spent exploring, working out, expanding upon, and applying Rawls’ views in a “hands-on” way to the contemporary issues of environmental justice and international justice.

Big thank you’s to David Nowakowski for facilitating our gathering this month! After posing a handful of questions, our group opted for a discussion about justice — inspired by a recent Grand Street Theatre performance of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express, and subsequent movie adaptations, as well as the book. Check out what sorts of things we explored here!
