GTSU2017 Law and Humanities (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
This course purports to offer students an informative and contextualised discussion of major issues related to the law, culture and the humanities, and an interdisciplinary understanding of the relationships and interactions between them in shaping and maintaining a law-governed and humanity-oriented sustainable community. The law is essentially a discipline of human rights and obligations, a discipline concerned with human life and with ways of weaving narratives, rights, justifications and punishments into texts.
This course also invites students to engage contemporary analyses of humans and legal forms, and to formulate an insightful perception of humanistic intelligence. It includes the questions to the role of history and culture in shaping various legal traditions; how language is deployed and understood in technical ways in legal documents; how new ideas of constituting marriages and families re-construct the family law; how and to what extent the legal tradition has been shaped by religion; how legal matters are viewed in the eye of literature; and how philosophical thoughts have been injected into the law.
