Summary: Written by a group of distinguished philosophers, the Foundations of philosophy Series aims to exhibit some of the main problems in the various fields of philosophy at the present stage of philosophical inquiry. This book is written from the viewpoint that although justice is the most important concept in political philosophy, it is also one of the most contested concepts in philosophy. Coverage begins with an overview of the concept of justice, arguing that justice ...show moreis a vital part of political philosophy, which in turn is part of moral philosophy. The book outlines an objectivist view of moral philosophy, which holds that moral principles have universal validity. The material presents a philosophical map to navigate the plethora of confusing, competing theories and concepts regarding the importance of justice. The author distinguishes between formal and material concepts of justice and discusses the related issues of comparative/noncomparative justice and distributive versus commutative justice.
Features

  • Brings a mix of both fundamental interpretations and contemporary achievements.
    • Helps students more fully comprehend the study of philosophy.
  • Strong moral emphasis-Views that morality is the most important institution for social life, and politics is a function of morality.
  • Outlines the classic desert theory of justice-Ch. 2.
  • Examines the libertarian concept of justice in the work of Robert Nozick-Ch. 3.
  • Discusses the most prominent liberal theories of the late John Rawls-Ch. 4.
  • Looks at recent pluralist theories of justice-Shows how they can be consistent with objectivist theories (Ch. 5).
  • Coverage of the idea of equal opportunity-In Ch. 6. Argues that while the concept of equal opportunity is ambiguous, it is the most plausible candidate for a lineage between equality and justice.
  • Outlines and defends a cosmopolitan view of justice-In Ch. 7.
  • Criminal justice coverage-Especially retributive justice, and argues for a pluralist version of penal justice (Ch. 8).
