|290-9||Graduate Seminar: Workshop in Law, Philosophy, and Political Theory||Cohen/Hoekstra||F 12-3||Law 141|
This course is a workshop for discussing works in progress in moral, political, and legal theory. The workshop creates a space for students to engage directly with philosophers, political theorists, and legal scholars working on normative questions toward the goal of fostering critical thinking about concepts of value and developing analytical thinking and writing skills. Another aim is to bring together people from different disciplines and perspectives who have strong normative interests or who speak to issues philosophers and theorists should know something about.
The theme for the Fall 2023 workshop is “Current Work on the History of Political, Legal, and Moral Philosophy.”
This semester the workshop is co-taught by Kinch Hoekstra and Josh Cohen.
The format of the course is as follows. A designated student commentator will lead off with a 15-minute comment on the paper. The presenter will have 5-10 minutes to respond and then we will open up the discussion to the group. The first part of the course will be open to all, including non-enrolled students, faculty, and visitors who wish to participate in the workshop discussion. We’ll stop for a break and those not enrolled in the course will leave. Enrolled students will continue the discussion with the guest for the last 50 minutes.
This is a shared seating course between the Law School (Law 210.2A), the Philosophy Department (Philosophy 290), and the Political Science Department (PS 211).
Zoom is available for those that cannot attend in Person.
