About this Book

Wide ranging and up to date, this is the single most comprehensive treatment of the most influential political philosopher of the 20th century, John Rawls.

  •  An unprecedented survey that reflects the surge of Rawls scholarship since his death, and the lively debates that have emerged from his work
  • Features an outstanding list of contributors, including senior as well as "next generation" Rawls scholars
  • Provides careful, textually informed exegesis and well-developed critical commentary across all areas of his work, including  non-Rawlsian perspectives
  • Includes discussion of new material, covering Rawls's work from the newly published undergraduate thesis to the final writings on public reason and the law of peoples
  • Covers Rawls's moral and political philosophy, his distinctive methodological commitments, and his relationships to the history of moral and political philosophy and to jurisprudence and the social sciences
  • Includes discussion of his monumental 1971 book, A Theory of Justice, which is often credited as having revitalized political philosophy
