Rawls: 'A Theory of Justice' and Its Critics (Key Contemporary Thinkers)

Chandran Kukathas


John Rawls' "A concept of Justice" has been influential in philosophy, political idea, welfare economics and jurisprudence. This e-book is assumed to be the 1st full-length research of Rawls' paintings. It offers a concise account of Rawls' vital rules, situates them inside of modern debates, and submits them to serious scrutiny. Kukathas and Petit speak about, between different issues, the utilitarian orthodoxy and its difficulties; the emergence of majoritarian and different social selection choices; the contractarian synthesis and its coverage implications; the suggestion of reflective equilibrium; and a few of the opinions of the contractarian view.
