9780415524414: The Concept of Injustice

The Concept of Injustice challenges traditional Western justice theory. Thinkers from Plato and Aristotle through to Kant, Hegel, Marx and Rawls have subordinated the idea of injustice to the idea of justice. Misled by the word’s etymology, political theorists have assumed injustice to be the sheer, logical opposite of justice. Heinze summons ancient and early modern texts, philosophical and literary, with special attention to Shakespeare, to argue that injustice is not primarily the negation, failure or absence of justice. It is the constant product of regimes and norms of justice. Justice is not always the cure for injustice, and is often its cause.

About the Author:

Eric Heinze is Professor of Law and Humanities at Queen Mary, University of London. His most recent publications on legal theory have appeared in Oxford Journal of Legal Studies, Ratio Juris, International Journal of Law in Context, Legal Studies, Journal of Social & Legal Studies, Canadian Journal of Law and Jurisprudence, Law & Critique, Law & Literature, and Law & Humanities.

Review:

"As Professor of Law and Humanities at Queen Mary College, University of London, Heinze argues in this thought provoking treatise that, contrary to the traditional tenets of Western justice theory, injustice is not primarily the negation, failure or absence of justice. Rather it is ‘the constant product of regimes and norms of justice’. Furthermore, justice is not always the cure for injustice, but often its cause." - Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

"The scholarship is breathtaking, but don’t be deterred or overawed by Heinze’s stunning erudition . . . something of magnitude is afoot." Adrian Howe, Legal Studies, Vol. 34 No. 4 (2014).

"The Concept of Injustice makes a thought-provoking contribution to debates about justice. Given that these debates are well-trodden ground within Western thought, Heinze is to be commended for such an original and engaging contribution."  Ball, Matthew J. Griffith Law Review, Vol. 22, No. 2 (2013).
