Moral Economy: Zur (De-)Legitimierung von Ungleichheit (On the (De-)Legitimation of Inequality)

Syllabus: Here

Advanced MA Level Course (32 teaching hours), Humboldt University Berlin, Winter Semester 2023/24.

Description: “Those who put in more should also have more”. “When times are tough, I help my own people first.” Ideas of justice, deservingness, reciprocity and legitimate differences are central to everyday reasoning. The course explores how everyday moral theories work, how they underpin unequal relations and how they can simultaneously lay the foundations for critique. We look at empirical studies on voting behavior, class consciousness, gender relations and attitudes towards migration and the welfare state.
