In the last year of his life, the great Marxist analytic philosopher G.A. Cohen put out a very short book (called "Why Not Socialism?") presenting the case for a socialist transformation of the economy in a compelling and unusual way. Five years later, the libertarian philosopher Jason Brennan wrote a response in the same format called, "Why Not Capitalism?" In this course we'll take a hard look at the arguments in both books.
