Liberalism & the Limits of Justice 2ND Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A liberal society seeks not to impose a single way of life, but to leave its citizens as free as possible to choose their own values and ends. It therefore must govern by principles of justice that do not presuppose any particular vision of the good life. But can any such principles be found? And if not, what are the consequences for justice as a moral and political ideal? These are the questions Michael Sandel takes up in this penetrating critique of contemporary liberalism. This new edition includes a new introduction and a new final chapter in which Professor Sandel responds to the later work of John Rawls.

Synopsis:

A liberal society must govern by principles of justice that do not presuppose any particular vision of the good life. But can any such principles be found? These are the questions taken up in this penetrating critique of contemporary liberalism.

Synopsis:

Sandel traces the limits of liberalism to the conception of the person that underlies it, and argues for a deeper understanding of community than liberalism allows.

Table of Contents
