About this course
This course focuses on the theories of justice of three major contemporary theorists: John Rawls, Robert Nozick and Ronald Dworkin, together with the current debates that their work has inspired. In particular it will also explore the contrast between theories of equality, priority and sufficiency, and the debate between 'luck egalitarianism' and its critics.
