Inhoud
On a global scale , wealth, health  and life opportunities are unfairly distributed. Philosophers have emphasized that this unfairness gives the affluent a moral duty to help the worst-off (Singer, Cullity), others tried to formulate basic principles for a fair society (Rawls, Walzer). Some argue that institutions cause unfairness (Pogge) and should change. In this course, basic theories of justice and key ethical principles (like precautionary principle, equality) are discussed and related to relevant topics in current society. Climate change and poverty will be particulary addressed.
