Could one guarantee a just and morally acceptable society? A Theory of Justice
by John Rawls details the fundamental principles behind such a place. Professor Michael Sugrue, Ph.D
., will analyze the ideas put forth in this book, the latest classic to be included in the Classics Revisited series. This piece of political philosophy is relevant today despite having been written 5 decades ago. Rawls describes equality and a “veil of ignorance” that can ensure justice. Which begs the question, if everyone were to agree to live a certain way, would there be justice and fairness? The Professor will discuss A Theory of Justice
and a live Q&A will follow.
