We will investigate some of the main philosophical problems that arise in connection with law in general and with the legal system of Canada in particular. These problems range from relatively practical questions such as the distinction between intent and knowledge in criminal law and the scope of freedom of expression in a free society to more theoretical questions such as the essential nature of law and the general relationship between a free society and democratic rule. This course will be of interest to philosophy majors, students in the social sciences and public policy, and people who are thinking about going to law school. The main goals of the course are (1) to improve students skills at using philosophical methods such as argument analysis and critique in legal and policy conte&~ xts and (2) to acquaint students with the major issues in the philosophical tradition of thinking about law.
