Lecture I: Liberty, Liberties, and "Total Freedom"

Tuesday, 18 May 2010

Lecture II: Contract versus Common Ground?

 

Prof.   Michelman

The Lectures will deal with themes of contract, consensus, and ethical value – and the interplay among these themes – in the justification of constitutional-democratic political regimes. They will question whether any firm differentiation can be maintained between contract-based and value-based orders of justification. They will frame this question through a close consideration of differing approaches to the definition, or conception, of constitutionally protected liberty represented by works of John Rawls and Ronald Dworkin.
