Enduring Questions: Shakespeare & Law
May 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
WITH DR. MICHAEL MCSHANE & MR. KESHAV DIMRI
We live in a terribly philosophical time. Questions that once seemed merely academic are now of pressing public urgency.
What is justice? To what degree can law help us to achieve justice? How to resolve tensions between justice and mercy? How should a citizen negotiate a constitutional crisis? How ought we to read the Constitution?
In the aftermath of recent social, political, and juridical events many are thinking now again about law and about justice itself.
This course is nonpartisan; it will attempt to deepen our understanding of perennial questions through a look at some classic writers, primarily Shakespeare but also relevant philosophers and jurists.
