Bio: 'Justice is a critical analysis of classical and contemporary theories of justice.' Each section of the class introduces a new theory on morality and justice, such as Utilitarianism or Libertarianism; and then focuses on the main claims and major objections to them. Students are challenged to agree/disagree with those theories and then defend that position (in class and on line) against both hypothetical and real world situational examples.
Accomplishments: Justice is the first edX humanities course, which is otherwise normally taught to a theater of several hundred Harvard students. In addition to being a very interesting philosophical class, it is also interesting to see how they try to manage and present the course to several thousands of students online.
