While Justice Everywhere takes a short break over the summer, we recall some of the highlights from our 2021-22 season.
A lot has been written about Covid-19 and Justice Everywhere has contributed to this on several fronts. Here are some links from the last year on philosophical issues raised by the pandemic that you may have missed or be interested to re-read:
- Angie Pepper’s post, What Do We Owe to Pandemic Puppies?, which consider the rise of animal adoption in the pandemic and the ethical concerns about what happens to them next.
- Costanza Porro’s post, What the pandemic can tell us about prison, which explores what prisons looked like during Covid-19 and the opportunity to transform a fraught institution into a caring and more just one.
- Andrew McGee & Drew Carter’s post, Withdrawing and withholding treatment are not always morally equivalent, which differentiates types of medical interventions by looking through the lens of possible treatment dilemmas that arose from Covid-19. (This is part of our ongoing collaboration with Journal of Applied Philosophy.)
- Aveek Bhattacharya & Fay Niker’s post, What the pandemic can teach us about political philosophy, which recounts what they brought together in our Philosophers’ Rundown on the Coronavirus Crisis and the development of these ideas into an edited book, Political Philosophy in a Pandemic: Routes to a More Just Future.
Stay tuned for even more on this topic in our 2022-23 season!
Justice Everywhere will return in full swing on 1st September with fresh weekly posts by our cooperative of regular authors (published on Mondays), in addition to our Journal of Applied Philosophy series (published on Thursdays). If you have a suggestion for a topic or would like to contribute a guest post on a topical subject in political philosophy (broadly construed), please feel free to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
