A theory of justice by John Rawls ( Book )
199 editions published between 1925 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 5,350 WorldCat member 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 )
37 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,176 WorldCat member 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
Lectures on the history of political philosophy by John Rawls ( Book )
16 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This last book by the late John Rawls, derived from written lectures and notes for his long-running course on modern political philosophy, offers readers an account of the liberal political tradition from a scholar viewed by many as the greatest contemporary exponent of the philosophy behind that tradition."--BOOK JACKET
Justice as fairness : a restatement by John Rawls ( Book )
31 editions published between 1958 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,467 WorldCat member 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
The law of peoples ; with, The idea of public reason revisited by John Rawls ( Book )
40 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book consists of two parts: the essay "The Idea of Public Reason Revisited," first published in 1997, and "The Law of Peoples," a major reworking of a much shorter article by the same name published in 1993. Taken together, they are the culmination of more than fifty years of reflection by John Rawls on liberalism and on some of the most pressing problems of our times."--Jacket

Collected papers by John Rawls ( Book )
22 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 1,079 WorldCat member 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."--Jacket
Reclaiming the history of ethics : essays for John Rawls ( Book )
18 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member 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

Gerechtigkeit als Fairness : ein Neuentwurf by John Rawls ( Book )
7 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in German and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Politische Gerechtigkeit muß fair sein. Dies war die Kernaussage von John Rawls' Versuch einer Erneuerung der Theorie vom Gesellschaftsvertrag aus dem Jahre 1971. Binnen weniger Monate avancierte sein Werk zu den meistdiskutierten moral- und staatsphilosophischen Programmen der neueren Zeit. Rawls' Gerechtigkeitspostulate und der Aspekt ihrer Durchführbarkeit in bezug auf Institutionen wie auch die Ansprüche an den einzelnen sind als Entwurf einer Gesellschaft, in der das Rechte zugleich als das Gute anerkannt wird, noch immer in der Diskussion. 32 Jahre nach der Veröffentlichung seines fulminanten vertragsrechtlichen Gedankenexperiments, Eine Theorie der Gerechtigkeit, erschien der Neuentwurf, in dem Rawls auf Einwände und Fragen seiner Kritiker reagiert und der nun als Taschenbuch vorliegt
