Podcasts from GA Cohen conference January 2009
On the website of Oxford University you can now download podcasts from the conference "Rescuing Justice and Equality: Celebrating the Career of G.A. Cohen" in January 2009.
The title of the conference was taken from Cohen's latest book (published by Harvard University Press in 2008), which is a critical discussion of John Rawls' theory of justice.
