HUMS 227 Love, Power, and Justice

Division of Liberal Arts

3 credits 45.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

The course will examine the relationship between love, power, and justice in interpersonal as well as social-political relations. Should love demand justice, or set aside the demands of justice through forgiveness? Must love, as Jesus said, ‘turn the other cheek’ when treated unjustly? Can turning the other cheek be unjust? Can revenge be just? Can love, in its attempt to achieve justice, make use of power, even violent power, without destroying itself as love?
