LAW 878 - Ownership and Justice

2 Credit Hours
Examines a number of classical and contemporary justifications of individual ownership of property. Coverage will include (among others) the labor theory, the constructivist view (as per modern economists and certain social philosophers), the Rawlsian view, and efforts of contemporary Christian philosophers to locate ownership within the community. Considered alongside philosophical materials will be contemporary legal scholarship that focuses on problems of self-realization and distribution. Will seek to apprehend the necessary conditions of any regime of individual ownership as well as the margins of what can be considered property.
