Professor of Philosophy Edward Song presents his research to the Honors community on why we are obligated to obey the law.  Professor Song, a long-time teacher in the Honors College, will be leaving LSU after this semester. Please join us for his farewell research presentation to the Honors community.  In it he will discuss the tension between the State's moral authority to force us to obey the law and a durable philosophical justification for this type of coercion, especially in the face of unjust or immoral laws. Professor Song will offer a way out of this dilemma by offering an alternative rooted in the idea of fairness.
