A theory of justice by John Rawls ( Book )
74 editions published between 1971 and 2010 in 9 languages and held by 3,165 libraries worldwide
This volume is a widely-read book of political philosophy and ethics. Arguing for a principled reconciliation of liberty and equality, it attempts to solve the problem of distributive justice (this concerns what is considered to be socially just with respect to the allocation of goods in a society). The resultant theory is known as "Justice as Fairness", from which the author derives his two famous principles of justice. The first of these two principles is known as the equal liberty principle. The second principle is split into two parts; the first, known as fair equality of opportunity, asserts that justice should not benefit those with advantageous social contingencies; while the second, reflecting the idea that inequality is only justified if it is to the advantage of those who are less well-off, is known as the difference principle.
Political liberalism by John Rawls ( Book )
24 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in 7 languages and held by 1,722 libraries worldwide
Rawls continues his ideas of fairness and justice presented in "A Theory of Justice", and address the question of how a stable and free society can be created when its citizens are deeply divided by religious, philosophical, and moral doctrines.
Justice as fairness : a restatement by John Rawls ( Book )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and Italian and held by 1,337 libraries worldwide
This book originated as lectures for a course on political philosophy that Rawls taught regularly at Harvard in the 1980s. In time the lectures became a restatement of his theory of justice as fairness, revised in light of his more recent papers and his treatise Political Liberalism (1993). Rawls offers a broad overview of his main lines of thought and also explores specific issues never before addressed in any of his writings. He is well aware that since the publication of A Theory of Justice in 1971, American society has moved farther away from the idea of justice as fairness. Yet his ideas retain their power and relevance to debates in a pluralistic society about the meaning and theoretical viability of liberalism. This book demonstrates that moral clarity can be achieved even when a collective commitment to justice is uncertain.

Collected papers by John Rawls ( Book )
5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 866 libraries worldwide
"John Rawls's work on justice has drawn more commentary and aroused wider attention than any other work in moral or political philosophy in the twentieth century. But before and after writing his great treatises, Rawls produced a steady stream of essays, some of which articulate views of justice and liberalism distinct from those found in the two books. They are important in and of themselves because of the deep issues about the nature of justice, moral reasoning, and liberalism they raise as well as for the light they shed on the evolution of Rawls's views."--BOOK JACKET.

Reclaiming the history of ethics : essays for John Rawls ( Book )
10 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 438 libraries worldwide
The essays in this volume offer an approach to the history of moral and political philosophy that takes its inspiration from John Rawls. All the contributors are philosophers who have studied with Rawls and they offer this collection in his honor. The distinctive feature of this approach is to address substantive normative questions in moral and political philosophy through an analysis of the texts and theories of major figures in the history of the subject: Aristotle, Hobbes, Hume, Rousseau, Kant, and Marx. By reconstructing the core of these theories in a way that is informed by contemporary theoretical and practical concerns, the contributors show how the history of the subject is a resource for understanding present and perennial problems in moral and political philosophy. This collection will be of particular interest to moral and political philosophers, political theorists, historians of philosophy, and historians of ideas.
