Course Instructor: Joseph Heath
This course is a study of the major normative considerations that speak in favour of or against public policy proposals, such as efficiency, farness, and considerations related to individual rights. A central theme is how policy decisions are related to, and yet are not simply decided by, everyday moral considerations.
