John Rawls was arguably the most important political philosopher of the 20th century. Barely a word of political philosophy is written today that is not indebted in some way to the philosophical paradigm that Rawls bequeathed. Rawls Explained sets out the thinker's complex arguments in a way that makes them accessible to first-time readers of his hugely influential work. Both clear in its exposition of Rawls' ideas and true to the complex purposes of his arguments, this book also attends to the variety of objections that have been made to them. The book is divided into three parts corresponding to the three books that form the core of Rawls’s theory: A Theory of Justice, Political Liberalism, and The Law of Peoples. Each section of the book ends with a survey of some of the main criticisms of the arguments coupled with Rawls’s strongest counterarguments.

About the Author:

Paul Voice teaches philosophy at Bennington College, Vermont.

Review:

Paul Voice's Rawls Explained is a fine introduction to John Rawls' political philosophy for students and other non-specialist readers. It presents the major concerns, notions, distinctions and shifts of Rawls' philosophy in an admirably engaging and accessible way and it helps the reader to begin reflecting on the issues with brief accounts of common criticisms and stimulating Rawlsian replies.From Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews.

In Rawls Explained: From Fairness to Utopia, Voice has done a great service to nonspecialists within academia, particularly outside the discipline of philosophy, and the larger public writ large. The aim of the work is to introduce the ideas of one whom many would consider the most significant political philosopher of the twentieth century, namely, John Rawls.From Philosophy of the Social Sciences
