9780820461007: Injustice and Rectification

This book aims to help answer two questions that Western philosophy has paid relatively little attention to – what is injustice and what does justice require when injustice occurs? Injustice and Rectification offers a taxonomy of justice, which sets forth an initial framework for a moral theory of justice and focuses on framing a conception of rectificatory justice. The taxonomy is ground for this book’s eleven other essays, in which a diverse group of authors brings philosophical analysis to bear on the idea of injustice itself and on some important conceptual and normative issues concerning the rectification of injustice.

About the Author:

The Editor: Rodney C. Roberts is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Review:

«Professor Roberts has done a masterful job of pulling together academic theory and philosophical practice. This book combines the theoretical examination of rectificatory justice with leading scholars working through its meaning and use. ‘Injustice and Rectification’ is a book for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Scholars interested in issues of justice will find this work very useful as both a resource tool and a focal point for discussion and research. Professor Roberts has produced a worthwhile and valuable work. Very good!» (Bill E. Lawson, Professor of Philosophy, Michigan State University)
«This timely collection of well-chosen, outstanding essays analyzes major concepts of rectificatory justice – apology, compensation, and reparation – with special attention to widely-discussed claims on behalf of African Americans and Native Americans. Roberts’ introduction alone is worth the price of the book. At a time when responses to atrocities are on everyone’s mind, this collection is more than welcome. It will be a great teaching tool.» (Claudia Card, Emma Goldman Professor of Philosophy, and Senior Fellow, Institute for Research in the Humanities, University of Wisconsin-Madison)
«This is an outstanding collection in several aspects. First, it is organized around a taxonomy of justice that provides a much needed systematic framework for discussing topics of injustice and rectification, so the whole is worth more than the sum of the parts. Second, the parts are absolutely first rate – a wonderful selection of authors. Finally, this is a focus that is sorely needed to connect the usual discussion of ideal theory with the real world. It is an important contribution to the discussion of injustice.» (Patricia Smith, Professor of Philosophy and Chair of the Department of Philosophy, Baruch College, City University of New York)
«Rodney C. Roberts takes a novel approach to questions of justice by concentrating on the neglected topic of justice in rectification and by placing injustice at the center of his inquiry. Along with the taxonomy of justice he develops from this analysis, Roberts makes available just the right mix of important work on the question of injustice and rectification, providing readers with both systematic and pluralistic treatments of his topic. In doing this, Roberts gives us a book that combines the benefits of a monograph with the benefits of an anthology, filling two important gaps in the contemporary literature on justice.» (Joan Callahan, Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Women’s Studies Program, University of Kentucky)
«Rodney C. Roberts has done the areas of political philosophy and philosophy of law a great service by editing this excellent collection of important essays on the subject of injustice and rectification. The many controversies unleashed by these questions, especially in an age of euphemistic globalism in the face of callous disregard for the profits won from practices of conquest, slavery, colonization, mercantilism, and economic orders that beset pillaged populations with debts whose interest payments seem increasingly impossible to meet, demand such engagements by philosophers – the majority of whom seem to remain locked in their dogmatic slumbers. This book, accompanied by a fine introduction by the editor, will prove valuable to scholars and teachers, as well as anyone struggling to find a voice of reason in the struggle to formulate and effect a better world.» (Lewis Gordon, Professor of Africana Studies, Religious Thought, Modern Culture and Media, and Latin American Studies, and Chair of the Department of Africana Studies, Brown University, Ongoing Visiting Professor of Political Philosophy in the Department of Government, University of the West Indies at Mona, Jamaica)
