JOHN RAWLS ON SOCIAL JUSTICE - Professor Duncan Ivison, Professor of Political Philosophy and Head of the School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry (SOPHI) John Rawls (1921-2002) has been hailed as one of the most important liberal political philosophers of our times. He is best known for his hugely influential book, A Theory of Justice (1971), which defended a vision of social justice in which individual rights and social equality were seemingly reconciled ... something many consider to be impossible. For Rawls, justice was the first virtue of social and political institutions and should structure the way fundamental rights and opportunities (as well as burdens) are distributed in a society. His conception of justice as fairness attempted to reconcile the often competing ideals of liberty and equality by setting out principles of justice that individuals, conceived of as rational and free and equal, would be willing to accept. Technically innovative, often dizzyingly abstract and yet deeply informed by the history of philosophy, Rawlss work has shaped philosophical thinking about justicefor better or worseever since.
