Humanist discussion group meeting

Filed under:
"The Liberal Politics of John Rawls: Why be Fair?", a presentation by Fred Yankowski John Rawls is one of the most important political and ethical thinkers of the last century. His 1971 book, Theory of Justice argued for a conception of politics based on liberal principles of equality, fairness, and concern for the disadvantaged. I will present a summary of the key points of his argument, based on reading his recent book, Justice as Fairness. We will consider these questions: + What does it mean to base justice on fairness? + Does this conception of justice agree with Humanism? + What does Rawls mean by "original position", "veil of ignorance", and "difference principle"? + Is this conception of justice realistic, or is it a utopian vision?
