Week Three Discussion Forum
The American philosopher, John Rawls (1921-2002), advanced an influential view of “justice as fairness.” Assess his argument for his version of egalitarian liberalism: what is included in his account of justice and what sorts of rights do people have in society? Do you agree with this kind of liberalism, or do you think it falls short in bringing about the kind of just and fair society Rawls envisions? Finally, explain and evaluate the communitarian (be careful not to confuse communitarianism with communism) critique of Rawls’s atomistic, abstract individualism.
