John Rawls, 1921-
Modern Harvard philosopher. In his most famous book, Theory of Justice (1971), Rawls proposed the idea of "original position", a mental exercise whereby a group of rational people must establish a principle of fairness (such as distribution of income) without knowing beforehand where on the resulting pecking order they will end up themselves. Rawls used this device to argue that the optimal arrangement will be to "maximize the welfare of society's worse-off member", which effectively justifies an egalitarian "no-substitution" social welfare function Major works of John Rawls

  • One who lacks a sense of justice lacks certain fundamental attitudes and capacities included under the notion of humanity. Now the moral feelings are admittedly unpleasant, in some extended sense of unpleasant; but there is no way for us to avoid a liability to them without disfiguring ourselves. This liability is the price of love and trust, of friendship and affection, and of devotion to institutions and traditions from which we have benefited and which serve the general interests of understanding what it would be like not to have a sense of justicethat it would be to lack part of our humanity toowe are led to accept our having this sense.

Notes on
"A Theory of Justice" Thanks to this book, many people consider Rawls to be the most influential philosopher of the late 20th century.
Even a lot of politicians have read Rawls' book!
He is now getting on in years, and has not been entirely well lately, but he is still at Harvard University.
In his book, Rawls used a bunch of catchy phrases and terms that have really caught on among social and political thinkers. So you can often tell if a person is familiar with Rawls' theory just by the way they talk!
Justice As Fairness
  • Rawls' theorywhich he often calls justice as fairness is an example of a social contract theory. Rawls' ideas have a little bit in common with the social contract theories of Hobbes and Rousseau and Locke.
  • Rawls mentions Kant's Categorical Imperative and the rule about treating person only as ends and never as means, so people also tie Rawls' theory back to Kant.
  • Rawls' theory is considered a liberal theory , meaning primarily that he is in favour of a society which is designed to help out the less fortunate individuals.
Here are the key features of Rawls' theory:
The Original Position
Recall that Hobbes and Locke and Rousseau each described a state of nature. The state of nature was mainly just a useful idea; Hobbes said that humans never were actually in the state of nature. Hobbes described how people could leave a state of nature by a hypothetical social contract.

John Rawls was born in 1921 and he died in 2002 having lived a full life where he was considered by some to be one of the most important philosophers of his time. Born in Baltimore, he went to school in Maryland before transferring to Kent School, a well respected prep school in Connecticut. When Rawls graduated in 1939, he went on to Princeton where he discovered a profound understanding of philosophy. After graduating from Princeton, Rawls joined the Army. Having viewed the devastation the bombing of Hiroshima stirred, Rawls left the Army instead of accepting an official position as an officer. Instead, he pursued his doctorate degree at Princeton and married Margaret Fox in 1949. Margaret, a Brown graduate, helped John write the index on a book about Nietzsche during their first months together. John Rawls returned to the states and began teaching at Cornell before later moving to Harvard. Rawls published Theory of Justice in 1971. He was also the author of other papers and intellectual works of thought-provoking creativity. Rawls taught at Harvard for approximately forty years. He had a stroke in 1995 but he went on to write The Law of Peoples which contains his passionate views on various topics including international justice. John Rawls died in 2002. He was eighty-one.

    John Rawls John Rawls (1921-2002) was arguably the most important political philosopher of the 20th century. He wrote a series of highly influential articles in the 1950s and ’60s that helped refocus Anglo-American moral and political philosophy on substantive problems about what we ought to do. His first book, A Theory of Justice TJ ] (1971), revitalized the social-contract tradition, using it to articulate and defend a detailed vision of egalitarian liberalism. In Political Liberalism PL (1993), he recast the role of political philosophy, accommodating it to the effectively permanent “reasonable pluralism” of religious, philosophical, and other comprehensive doctrines or worldviews that characterize modern societies. He explains how philosophers can characterize public justification and the legitimate, democratic use of collective coercive power while accepting that pluralism. Although most of this entry will be devoted to TJ , the exposition of that work will take account of Political Liberalism and other later works of Rawls.

I have attempted with limited success to understand Rawls' book - please do not regard this as being in any sense an authoritative summary of Rawls' thought. I personally find this book particularly difficult to penetrate, perhaps because my training is in the physical sciences rather than philosophy, and I generalize quite beyond the evidence when I suspect that others also find it less than accessible.

    Original Position
    First published Tue Feb 27, 1996; substantive revision Tue Apr 8, 2003 The idea of the original position is perhaps the most lasting contribution of John Rawls to our theorizing about social justice. The original position is a hypothetical situation in which rational calculators, acting as agents or trustees for the interests of concrete individuals, are pictured as choosing those principles of social relations under which their principals would do best. Their choices are subject to certain constraints, however, and it is these constraints which embody the specifically moral elements of original position argumentation. Crudely, the rational calculators do not know facts about their principals which would be morally irrelevant to the choice of principles of justice. This restriction on their reasoning is embodied, picturesquely, in Rawls's so-called veil of ignorance choice

    by John Rawls , Samuel Richard Freeman (Editor) 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....

    By Ken Gewertz
    Gazette Staff
    Updated 4 p.m. 11/26/02 John Rawls, the James Bryant Conant University Professor Emeritus, whose 1971 book, "A Theory of Justice" argued persuasively for a society based on equality and individual rights, died Sunday (Nov. 24) at the age of 81. Rawls is considered by many to be the most important political philosopher of the 20th century and a powerful advocate of the liberal perspective. His work continues to be a major influence in the fields of ethics, law, political science, and economics, and has been translated into 27 languages. Harvard University President Lawrence H. Summers said, "I am deeply saddened by the death of John Rawls. He combined profound wisdom with equally profound humanity. Few if any modern philosophers have had as decisive an impact on how we think about justice. Scholars in many different fields will continue to learn from him for generations to come."

    This web page was revised September 3, 2002 Note. This web page is based primarily on ideas contained in John Rawls' influential book A Theory of Justice (Harvard University Press, 1971), which has been discussed by many philosophers and nonphilosophers alike. Its ideas are often quoted and paraphrased in textbooks for Introduction to Philosophy, Ethics, and Business Ethics courses. But Rawls has gone beyond his views of 1971, and philosophy courses are beginning to take his important later thinking into account. The later ideas of Rawls to some extent build on the earlier work summarized below. A new webpage has been developed to accompany the discussion of Rawls' later ideas.

    John Rawls
    A Theory of Justice
    Rawls's theory of justice revolves around the adaptation of two fundamental principles of justice which would, in turn, guarantee a just and morally acceptable society. The first principle guarantees the right of each person to have the most extensive basic liberty compatible with the liberty of others. The second principle states that social and economic positions are to be (a) to everyone's advantage and (b) open to all. A key problem for Rawls is to show how such principles would be universally adopted, and here the work borders on general ethical issues. He introduces a theoretical "veil of ignorance" in which all the "players" in the social game would be placed in a situation which is called the "original position." Having only a general knowledge about the facts of "life and society," each player is to make a "rationally prudential choice" concerning the kind of social institution they would enter into contract with. By denying the players any specific information about themselves it forces them to adopt a generalized point of view that bears a strong resemblance to the moral point of view. "Moral conclusions can be reached without abandoning the prudential standpoint and positing a moral outlook merely by pursuing one's own prudential reasoning under certain procedural bargaining and knowledge constraints." Comments on Rawls's Political Liberalism Thomas McCarthy's recent comments on Habermas and Rawls.
