John Rawls is the preeminent political philosopher of our time. His 1971 masterpiece, A Theory of Justice, permanently changed the landscape of moral political theory, revitalizing the normative study of social issues and taking stands about justice, ethics, rationality and philosophical method that continue to draw followers and critics today.
In these five volumes, Henry S. Richardson and Paul Weithman draw together almost 90 of the most incisive and influential articles in that body of literature. The reprinted articles, many of them drawn from difficult-to-find sources, cover the gamut of controversies and conversations sparked by Rawls's work and represent a wide range of philosophical points of view. The selection also includes articles that reflect Rawls's reception in economics, law, and the social science more broadly.
The publication of these five volumes will be welcomed by students and scholars of contemporary political philosophy, and by anyone interested in the most probing reactions to the premier political philosopher of our time.
