Abstract:

"Audard begins with an exploration of Rawls' conception of political and social justice and its justification as presented in his groundbreaking A theory of justice. She provides a sustained examination of Rawls' moral philosophy, the complex relations between Rawls' views and utilitarianism, and his most famous concept, the Original Position Device. She concludes with an analysis of Rawls' more practical concerns for stability and political consensus, citizenship and international justice, showing the continuity between these concerns and his earlier work. [This book] places the philosopher's ideas within an historical context and provides an interpretative and critical framework that will help shape ongoing debates surrounding Rawls' work"--Provided by publisher.
