philosophy 6 introduction to political philosophy MW 1-2:50 This course will study the political values of freedom and justice. We’ll spend most of our time trying to say what those values are. Toward the end of the term we’ll consider whether freedom or justice raises any objection to a single feature of American society, the mass incarceration of black men in its prisons and jails. I’ll distribute the readings by email to everyone signed up for the course. The written work for this class is two takehome writing assignments, worth .3 of your grade, and an inclass final worth .4. The first homework covers the Nozick, Waldron, and Cohen readings; the second is on Scanlon, Rawls, and Shelby; and the final will focus on Anderson and Loury. jan 3 Robert Nozick, “How liberty upsets patterns” jan 5 more Nozick jan 10 Jeremy Waldron, “Homelessness and the issue of freedom” jan 12 more Waldron jan 19 G. A. Cohen, “The structure of proletarian unfreedom” jan 24 more Cohen jan 26
