Review:

If we want to address cases of injustice, we need to rethink our theories of justice. That requires a critical analysis of the assumptions in liberal theories of justice as well as the development of alternatives. Theorizing Justice makes important contributions to this project, and should be required reading for anyone interested in justice for the world as it is. (Ingrid Robeyns, Professor of Ethics, Utrecht University)

This collection stimulatingly explores a great variety of questions that arise under the umbrella of justice—from Rawls’s question about the basic structure of society to questions about minimal, fundamental, and transitional justice; justice for indigenous peoples; justice in circumstances with more than moderate scarcity; and more—here appropriately addressed by a strikingly diverse set of distinctive authorial voices. (Henry S. Richardson, Professor of Philosophy, Georgetown University)

Book Description Rowman Littlefield International, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. One of the most important contributions to contemporary political philosophy, Rawls s A Theory of Justice, re-ignited political philosophy and revolutionized how we theorize about justice. Rawls s approach to justice advanced political philosophy in important and valuable ways - most significantly in the way that it showed that political philosophy remained relevant for our lives and our world. Unsurprisingly, over forty years later, social and global realities present theories of justice with new challenges. This volume examines what these new challenges are, and whether contemporary theories are in a position to respond to them. The collection brings together essays that push the boundaries of justice theorizing in new directions, and that begin to construct a new paradigm. The collection contributes to the creation of a platform from which new ideas and new conversations, about the challenges and opportunities for justice in our world, can be further explored and developed.
