Justice as Attunement : Transforming Constitutions in Law, Literature, Economics and the Rest of Life, Hardback Book

Justice as Attunement : Transforming Constitutions in Law, Literature, Economics and the Rest of Life Hardback

Description

The meaning of an expression resides not in the expression itself but in the experience of a person's engagement with it.

Meaning will be different not only to different people but also to the same person at different times.

This book offers a way of attending to these different meanings.

This way (or method) is a version of a trans-cultural activity that Richard Dawson calls attunement.

The activity of attunement involves a movement of self-adjustment to a language, which a person transforms in her or his use of it.

Consciously performing the activity can enable understanding of the processes by which we constitute ourselves and others when we use a language.

This directly connects to the topic justice, which is concerned with constituting appropriate selves and relations.

Justice as Attunement engages with a wide range of texts - legal, literary, economic, philosophical, among others - and illuminates many useful and fascinating connections between them.

There is a sense in which this book transcends disciplinary boundaries, for, in addition to students and scholars of law, literature, economics, and philosophy, it is written to a general reader who is interested in reflecting on and doing justice to their experiences in life.
