Instructor: Daniel Muñoz. This course meets TR 11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. in CW 103.

This PPE Capstone will be about reform, with a special focus on reforming prisons and police. What is unjust about our current criminal justice system? What can be fixed, and what should simply be abandoned? We will address these questions by drawing on recent work in philosophy, politics, and economics. We will also be watching Season 3 of the classic HBO series The Wire; students may wish to watch the first two seasons before the start of classes.


This course is for graduating senior PPE minors who have (1) taken the 384 Gateway course and (2) have taken (or are taking) all other courses necessary to complete the PPE minor.
