John Rawls (1921-2002) is one of the most influential thinkers of the twentieth century. Contemporary political philosophy has been reshaped by his seminal ideas and most current work in the discipline is a response to them. Catherine Audard introduces his central ideas and examines their contribution to contemporary political thought. Audard begins with an exploration of Rawls' conception of political and social justice and its justification as presented in his groundbreaking A Theory of Justice. She provides a sustained examination of Rawls' moral philosophy, the complex relation between Rawls' views and utilitarianism, and his most famous concept, the Original Position Device. She concludes with an analysis of Rawls' more practical concerns for stability and political consensus, citizenship and international justice, showing the continuity between these concerns and his earlier work. John Rawls places the philosopher's ideas within an historical context and provides an interpretative and critical framework that will help shape ongoing debates surrounding Rawls' work.

Review:

"Audard's book offers a concise reading of John Rawls's political philosophy. It is all at once instructive, pedagogical, provocative, and well informed... it will play an important role in the future for Rawls scholarship and must be taken very seriously by all Rawlsian scholars." - Ethics "An impressive book, written by someone who has an extensive and deep appreciation of Rawls' work. It offers a nuanced discussion of his central ideas, proceeding nicely from a discussion of A Theory of Justice through to Rawls' account of international political morality." - Matthew Clayton, University of Warwick
