Inhoud
This course is an introduction to philosophy of law. The first part explores core questions in general jurisprudence and normative legal theory: What is law? In what circumstances is a law valid? What is the nature of legal authority? Do laws necessarily have moral content? Are we morally obligated to obey the law? What is the relation between law and democracy? The second part of the course focuses on the relation between law and various forms of social power. Marxist, feminist, ecological, and critical race theoretic perspectives on legality will be explored. A high level of English language ability is required for this course.
