Product Description


not only a convincing rebuttal of the standard story ... but more importantly, a detailed reconstruction of the parts of the argument Rawls ultimately found to be wanting, the flaws Rawls discovered there, and the ways that the pieces of the later work serve to fix those problems. ... Weithman's reconstruction of both the original argument in A Theory of Justice and the later, political, replacement, are masterpieces of close, almost scholastic, exegesis. (Anthony Simon Laden, Mind)

About the Author

Paul Weithman is Professor of Philosophy, University of Notre Dame

5.0 out of 5 stars public reason & stability for the right reason 28 Mar. 2014
By Nythamar de Oliveira - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Excellent, original read that tries to do justice to Rawls's shift from TJ to PL without losing sight of the public reason & stability arguments, so as to avoid nonpolitical conceptions of moral motivation within the WOS
