   schema:description "Justice is a central concern in everyday life; we are constantly confronted with situations that require us to assess the fairness of individuals' acts and institutional policies. These situations often involve difficult trade-offs between equality and efficiency, self-interest and cooperation, or short-term consumption and long-term savings. Psychological Perspectives on Justice explores our intuitions about fairness in the distribution of costs and benefits. Some of the chapters examine the extent to which individual behavior deviates from normative theories of justice, discussing competing theories such as utilitarianism and economic efficiency. Other chapters discuss the various rules that people use to make fair distributions, the motivation for people to conform to rules of fairness even when they conflict with self-interest, the differences between liberals and conservatives in their views of justice, and the rules that societies use to distribute or allocate scarce resources. The mixture of theoretical and applied perspectives provides a balanced look at the psychological underpinnings of justice."@en ;
