Rawls 'A Theory of Justice' and Its Critics Paperback / softback

Part of the Key Contemporary Thinkers series


John Rawls's A Theory of Justice has been enormously influential in philosophy, political theory, welfare economics and jurisprudence.

This book is a systematic study of Rawls's work. It provides a clear and concise account of Rawls's ideas, situates them within contemporary debates and submits them to critical scrutiny. The authors discuss the background against which A Theory of Justice was written, the contractarian character of Rawls's theory, his claims about justice and his arguments for them.

Finally the authors look at Rawls's emerging self-interpretation and self-critique, identifying the different phases of his later development. Clear and accessible to non-specialists, this book will also be of great value to students in philosophy, sociology and economics.
