Description

',The principles of justice are chosen behind a veil of ignorance' John Rawls, A Theory of Justice What is justice? How can we know it? How can we make our society more just? The most significant political philosopher since John Stuart Mill, John Rawls (1921 2002) grappled with such dilemmas. His work has been the source not only of academic argument, but also of political debate and legislative reform, arguing that we have a moral duty to organise society so as to rectify undeserved inequality. In the first introduction to Rawls's work which encompasses his entire career, Dr Paul Graham combines lucid exposition with thought-provoking criticism. Locating Rawls in the rich history of political thought, Graham explores a theory that remains fiercely relevant as the developed world sees unprecedented levels of inequality. For anyone concerned with how society works, this is a vital introduction to one of the great modern philosophers and to a subject that is crucial to how we live.

'The principles of justice are chosen behind a veil of ignorance'
- John Rawls, A Theory of Justice

What is justice? How can we know it? How can we make our society more just? The most significant political philosopher since John Stuart Mill, John Rawls (1921 - 2002) grappled with such dilemmas. His work has been the source not only of academic argument, but also of political debate and legislative reform, arguing that we have a moral duty to organise society so as to rectify undeserved inequality.

In the first introduction to Rawls's work which encompasses his entire career, Dr Paul Graham combines lucid exposition with thought-provoking criticism. Locating Rawls in the rich history of political thought, Graham explores a theory that remains fiercely relevant as the developed world sees unprecedented levels of inequality. For anyone concerned with how society works, this is a vital introduction to one of the great modern philosophers and to a subject that is crucial to how we live.



Résumé
What is justice? How can we know it? Harder still, how can we implement it? Combining lucid exposition with thought-provoking criticism, Paul Graham gives us the first introduction to Rawls work that encompasses his entire career from his early articles in the 1950s to his death in 2002. The most significant political philosopher since John Stuart Mill, Rawls Theory of Justice sold over 250,000 copies and has been translated into 20 languages. His presentation of social justice, and particularly his contention that how we organize society should rectify undeserved inequality rather than ratify it, has been the source not only of academic argument but of political debate and legislative reform. Covering the most interesting and important aspects of Rawls work in a stimulating manner, this study is essential reading for students, scholars, and interested readers alike.
