Rawls

£7.99

Product description

John Rawls (1921-2002) was the most influential political philisopher of the twentieth century. His writing on the nature of justice transformed philosophical and political thought on the subject and his vision of a "well-ordered society", in which all reasonable persons accept a conception of justice as fairness, remains highly influential. In this superb introduction, Samuel Freeman introduces and assesses the main topics of Rawls' philosophy. Starting with a brief biography and charting the influences on Rawls' early thinking, he goes on to discuss the heart of Rawls's philosophy: his principles of justice and their practical application to society. Subsequent chapters discuss Rawls's theories of liberty, political and economic justice, democratic institutions, goodness as rationality, moral psychology, political liberalism, and international justice and a concluding chapter considers Rawls' legacy. Clearly setting out the ideas in Rawls' masterwork, A Theory of Justice, Samuel Freeman also considers Rawls' other key works, including Political Liberalism and The Law of Peoples. An invaluable introduction to this deeply influential philosopher, Rawls is essential reading for anyone coming to his work for the first time. This 550 page 2007 paperback is in a fair condition. There are some scratches and dents to the paperback cover from how it has been used and stored, including a couple of cracks to the spine, a small tear half way down the front cover at the edge of the spine and some dogging to the corners. There are passages underlined in pen and pencil or highlighted with a highlighter and some notes written in the page margins throughout the book. Some pages also have their corners folded over and others have slightly dogged corners, as well as some blue highlighter and black marks to the page block.
