Representative Thinkers

Phil 082

Dr. Joseph Asike

An examination of the fundamental nature of justice. The course examines two primary questions: What is Justice? Is the just individual happier than the unjust person? In the Republic, Plato argues that the structure of the just society is analogous to the psychological structure of the just person, and that the characteristics of justice are more easily discovered in a society than in an individual. Plato’s account of justice reveals a still closer connection between the just individual and the just society (Republic pp. ix-x)
Systematic inquiry into selected issues in contemporary societies based on the outstanding works of thinkers who have influenced humanity.
