GOVT 86.41 Ethics, Politics, and the Law

This interdisciplinary course will examine normative issues about ethics, politics, and the law. Specific questions studied might include the following: When is the state justified in using coercive force to secure compliance with the law? How should we proceed with those who disagree with us about normative questions within a democratic, pluralistic society? Are there correct answers to normative questions at all, and (if so) how might we improve in learning about them?
