CEED 6322. NATURAL LAW:THE NATURE,FOUNDATIONS AND CONTENT OF JUSTICE. (3 Credits)
This course will examine the theoretical foundations and practical implications of natural law theory. Because "natural law theory" is often taken to mean many different things, one of the course's first aims will be to establish a common vocabulary for identifying and distinguishing the various kinds of natural law theory(e.g. "natural law theory" as a kind of moral thoery, as a kind of legal theory, and as kind of theory about human rights). Our ensuing discussion will open onto a series of questions that will guide us through the rest of the course: "What is the nature of justice?" "What are the different kinds of justice and what does it mean to have a right?" "What do rights and justice have to do with one another?" "What is the nature of law?" "What is the difference between positive law and natural law?" "Is law reducible to the will of the strongest, or is it the case-as the natural law traditions holds-that unjust law is no law at all?" "What is meant by 'the good' and 'the common good'?" "What is the nature,scope, and justification of authority(both legal authority and other kinds of authority)? "What is the nature and purpose of punishment?" "And how are we to make sense of the natural law tradition in light of our contemporary understandings of autonomy, governmental neutrality, and reasonable pluralism?" The course will not only introduce the classical natural law tradition (based mainly on the thought of Aristotle and Aquinas), but will place this classicall traditon in dialogue with contemporary thinkers. The ultimate aim of the course will be to achieve an understanding of the natural law traditon and its relevance for a variety of contemporary legal issues. No prior acquaintace with philosophy or jurisprudence is assumed; the relevant concepts will be developed in class.
