Lunch Chat: Rawls on Wall Street (12/1)

I hope everyone had a pleasant Thanksgiving Break. Lunch chats will resume at noon on Thursday the 1st in the Philosophy Lounge (Coleman 62). We'll discuss Steven Mazie's Stone column "Rawls on Wall Street".

The Boston Review also had a recent interview with the political philosopher Joshua Cohen on the subject of connection between Rawls' views and the OWS movement that's worth reading. For background on Rawls and his important book A Theory of Justice, you can check out this entry in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
