This course explores the dialectical relation between law, justice, and morality from the perspectives of law and the humanities--drawing substantially from the field of general jurisprudence, and specifically from the disciplines ofphilosophy, history, and literature oflaw. The course focuses on how justice as a moral and a legal construct has been conceived in its social and historical contexts from Biblical and Hellenic to modern and contemporary times. In particular, we will examine: the theoretical foundations oflaw, justice and morality; the embeddedness of law and justice in specific contexts and the extent to which our increasingly global world increases the number and complexity of moral and legal dilemmas confronting us as local and global citizens; and the ways in which law mediates the relationship between the individual and the state.
