"Samuel Freeman is one of Rawls's foremost interpreters. This volume contains nine of his essays on Rawls and Rawlsian justice, two of which are previously unpublished. Freeman places Bawls within historical context in the social contract tradition, addresses criticisms of his positions, and discusses the implications of his views on issues of distributive justice, liberalism and democracy, international justice, and other subjects. This collection will be useful to the wide range of scholars interested in Rawls and theories of justice."--Jacket
Collected papers by John Rawls ( Book )
21 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 1,071 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

Geschichte der politischen Philosophie by John Rawls ( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in German and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Seit Mitte der 1960er Jahre bis zu seiner Emeritierung im Jahr 1995 hat John Rawls an der Harvard University regelmäßig eine Lehrveranstaltung mit dem Titel "Politische Philosophie der Neuzeit" angeboten. Diese hat Rawls dazu genutzt, seine eigenen theoretischen Entwürfe zu diskutieren, vor allem seine bahnbrechende "Theorie der Gerechtigkeit", die eines der einflußreichsten philosophischen Werke des 20. Jahrhunderts werden sollte. Zugleich ergriff er immer wieder die Gelegenheit, seine Ansichten zur Philosophie des Politischen und des Sozialen mit denen seiner historischen Vorläufer auf diesem Gebiet in Beziehung zu setzen, um "ein Bild der besonders zentralen Merkmale des Liberalismus zu vermitteln"--Eines Liberalismus, dessen Kern eine politische Konzeption der Gerechtigkeit bildet, die sich ihrerseits aus der Tradition des demokratischen Konstitutionalismus und des Gesellschaftsvertrags entwickelt hat. Für diese Tradition stehen für Rawls insbesondere sechs Autoren: die Vertragstheoretiker Hobbes, Locke und Rousseau, die Utilitaristen Hume und Mill sowie Marx als der in vielerlei Hinsicht interessanteste Kritiker des klassischen Liberalismus. Der Band, an dessen Konzeption John Rawls noch selbst mitgewirkt hat, versammelt seine großen Vorlesungen zu diesen Klassikern und bietet die seltene Gelegenheit, die Geschichte der politischen Philosophie mit den Augen eines ihrer herausragenden zeitgenössischen Vertreter zu lesen, der selbst bereits zum Klassiker auf diesem Gebiet geworden ist
Lezioni di storia della filosofia politica by John Rawls ( Book )
4 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in Italian and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Questo volume è la traduzione dei corsi di storia della filosofia politica che John Rawls tenne ad Harvard a partire dalla metà degli anni sessanta, sino alla conclusione della sua attività accademica a metà degli anni novanta del secolo scorso. Rawls vi discute le concezioni dei fondatori del pensiero politico moderno: Hobbes, Locke, Hume, Rousseau, Mill e Marx. Lo scopo che Rawls si prefigge è quello di enucleare le idee che caratterizzano il liberalismo come teoria politica della giustizia all'interno della tradizione del costituzionalismo democratico. Ne emerge un affascinante confronto non solo con le grandi figure della tradizione contrattualista, ma anche con le obiezioni e revisioni di alcuni dei suoi critici più importanti: dalla dottrina dell'utilità pubblica di Hume, al liberalismo utilitarista di J.S. Mill, alla critica marxiana al capitalismo liberale. Come scrive Salvatore Veca nella sua Nota introduttiva, una delle ragioni fondamentali dell'importanza di quest'opera risiede nel'"vivido repertorio di possibilità concettuali e di prospettive teoriche fra loro alternative, in tensione costante con i nostri impegni concettuali e le nostre prospettive teoriche", e nella possibilità per il lettore di "aggirarsi nel cantiere e nel laboratorio della costruzione della teoria della giustizia come equità"

Lectures on the history of political philosophy by John Rawls ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This last book by the [author], 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. [His] goal in the lectures was, he wrote, "to identify the more central features of liberalism as expressing a political conception of justice when liberalism is viewed from within the tradition of democratic constitutionalism." He does this by looking at several strands that make up the liberal and democratic constitutional traditions, and at the historical figures who best represent these strands - among them the contractarians Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau; the utilitarians Hume, Sidgwick, and J. S. Mill; and Marx regarded as a critic of liberalism. -Dust jacket
