Global Justice: Cosmopolitanism in a Technoscientific World

Global Justice: Cosmopolitanism in a Technoscientific World

Despite their many positive impacts, science and technology have also become global problems. Given that, how should we understand and reformulate classic philosophical accounts of global justice? This course will consider recent attempts to govern techno-science in a globalized world (e.g. the International Summits on Genome Editing), placing them in conversation with widelycited texts in political theory, from Ancient Greek cosmopolitanisms to feminist ethics of globalized care. Core readings will be selected from political philosophy, supplemented with material from sociology and popular discourse.
