This book is written by Amartya Sen, who is one of the most influential thinkers in our world. He is also a Nobel Prize winner in Economics, and in this book, Sen tries to explore the world with justice at its fulcrum. He critically examines whether justice is able to serve the purpose or whether an alternative system can be evolved. Sen comes up with the idea of a compassionate justice system, while pondering on the existing model. According to Sen, the justice system should touch the lives of every single person rather than being subjugated to the will of the majority. He believes that the system of justice should evolve from Nyaya, which is centrally an Indian perspective. According to Sen, nothing is finely expressed and perceived so much so as injustice, and his main argument is that the system of justice takes the society in the wrong direction since and he believes that reduction of injustice can finally make one move towards providing justice. He also argues that ones ability of reasoning is important for making societies move away from injustice. Though there are divergent viewpoints of justice, these though processes cannot be avoided, since they stem from divergent foundations. The book is an unavoidable object for those in the field of justice and thought, while being concerned about the dispensation for justice in the current scenario.
