Democracy, Equality, and Justice

 
9781138874831: Democracy, Equality, and Justice

In addressing democracy, equality, and justice together, the book stimulates discussions that go beyond the sometimes increasingly technical and increasingly discrete literatures that now dominate the study of each concept. The chapters fall into four categories: on justice and democracy; justice and equality; justice and community; and justice and the future. Concerns of justice unite all the chapters in this volume. However, these concerns now manifest themselves in interesting and new directions. Politically, the book confronts urgent problems of democracy, equality, community, and of how to respond to potentially catastrophic climate change. The response to these problems cannot only be pragmatic and piecemeal. What emerges are a number of interlinking questions and themes that together constitute the central core of contemporary political philosophy.

This book was previously published as a special issue of the Critical Review of Social and Political Philosophy.

Review:

'Many of these papers emerged from a symposium hosted by the British Academy which was inspired by the work of Brian Barry, to whom the volume is dedicated. Part of its success, however, lies in the editors' willingness to stretch the boundaries of what Barry meant by liberalism, but in doing so they bring liberal theory into better alignment with contemporary concerns underlying liberal societies. In all, this is a masterful literature review through selected articles that make a number of connections between the ways that democracy, equality and justice have changed since the 1980s.' Vidhu Verma, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Political Theory Journal
