John Rawls is regarded as the most important political philosopher of the twentieth century. His seminal work, A Theory of Justice, transformed the study of political philosophy and shaped the political thought of a generation. Rawls on Justice demystifies this difficult text by introducing and assessing:

  • Rawls' life and the background to his philosophy

  • The key concepts of A Theory of Justice, including the 'orginal position', the 'veil of ignorance', and the two principles of justice

  • Rawls' continuing importance to contemporary philosophy and influence on political thought

Ideal for those coming to Rawls for the first time, Rawls on Justice is an invaluable guide for students of philosophy, political thought, economics and law.
