A222 – week 29 – Justice and equality

The final week of book study this week, with the final chapter of the final book on justice and equality. To change things up we were looking at some more modern philosophers with Nozick, Dworkin and Anderson, but never fear, good old John Locke still got a mention. It was interesting to see where some of the scary ideas favoured by the far right in the US got a lot of their arguments from (and then corrupted somewhat), and Elizabeth Anderson seemed particularly angry about trying to account for luck (good and bad), but political philosophy all seems to come down to ‘nice idea, but wouldn’t work in the real world’.

A final TMA to write next week before going away, one more online tutorial then it’s just getting my head down to revise and smarten up my handwriting as much as possible before the exam.
