2012 International Summer School in Political Philosophy - Liberalism, Libertarianism, and Democracy: Theory and Practice

July 9 to July 20, 2012
Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey

This program will cover themes from contemporary liberal political philosophy.  The first week will have a more theoretical orientation and the second week will have a more applied orientation. Topics will include: egalitarianism, classical liberalism, and libertarianism; desert and distributive justice; reparative justice and collective responsibility;  non-ideal theory; constitutional reform in Turkey; secularism and political legitimacy; banning political parties; and more. Each instructor will offer multiple seminars and workshops, providing participants many opportunities to engage with instructors. Since some instructors will present work in progress for book projects, participants will be working through some of the most current topics in political philosophy.  Participants will also have the opportunity to present their own work in progress.

Sam Freeman (University of Pennsylvania)
