Realizing Rawls

Realizing_RawlsRealizing Rawls is a defense and critique of the work of John Rawls. Thomas Pogge concentrates on two central Rawlsian ideas: first the focus on the basic structure, for moral philosophy must include, even begin from, a reflection upon the justice of our basic social institution; second, the maximin idea that a scheme of social institutions is to be assessed by the worst position it generates, that its justice depends on how well it does by its least advantaged participants. His main interest is one part of Rawls theory, his conception of justice. He is centrally concerned with the meaning of the criterion of justice that Rawls has proposed, with the rationale for this criterion, and with its application to existing and feasible institutional schemes.
