What is justice? Who has the authority to decide on what is just among competing interpretations? These questions have received numerous answers, from Plato through to the Catholic Social Teaching tradition and the variety of national legal justice systems. This unit will seek to make sense of these matters in conjunction with themes of retributive and restorative justice, local and global justice, and individual rights and social justice. Crucial engagements will take place with theological themes of grace, hospitality, mercy, and sacrifice.
