4th Annual Undergraduate Philosophy Conference
The plenary speaker for the 4th Annual Moravian Undergraduate Philosophy Conference will be Dr. Roslyn Weiss, Clara H. Stewardson Professor of Philosophy Lehigh University. The talk will be open to the public.
Title: Justice in Republic I
ABSTRACT: I argue that justice in the Republic is defined in Book I and is an interpersonal, social, virtue, and not in Book IV where what is called justice is wholly internal to the soul and is actually moderation.
