PHIL 7740 Global Justice and Obligation (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

It has become clear to all informed observers that we are in an age of rapid change in the global order, evident in phenomena such as the Arab Spring, the rise of China, the EU crisis, and talk of a "post-American" or "multi-polar" world, to name only a few. We will explore the question, "What, if any, specifically political obligations do individuals have and how is this impacted by these global transformations?," through a close, critical reading of four important recent works by noted political philosophers and theorists.
