PHIL 041. Peace and Political Philosophy

(Cross-listed as PEAC 41)
How might we establish a peaceful world? What is the relationship between peace, justice, and individual rights? Can war ever be justified and, if so, under what circumstances? How can societies that have experienced violent conflict transition into peace? This course examines these questions from the perspective of political philosophy. We will ask what a peaceful world might look like and what would be required to bring it about.
