Was Augustine right that an unjust law is not a law' Who gets to decide what's unjust' What should be done about it' In this class, we will read ancient meditations on these questions, such as Plato's Crito and Sophocles' Antigone, alongside modern essays including Thoreau's On Civil Disobedience, King's "Letter from a Birmingham Jail," and Anthony's "Is it a Crime for a Citizen of the United States to Vote'" We will use these and other texts to explore themes such as social contracts, definitions of a law, the philosophy and practice of civil disobedience, and the question of violence in civil disobedience, and we will discuss how situating ancient and modern ideas about these topics in their socio-political contexts can help us understand present-day debates.
