JOHN RAWLS, A THEORY OF JUSTICE, as presentation by Marty Carcieri

John Rawls' work may be the state of the art in western political theory. He transformed the discipline in 1971 with A THEORY OF JUSTICE and spent the next thirty years refining his theory in response to the most able critiques from across the political spectrum. As Harvard professor Michael Sandel has written, A THEORY OF JUSTICE "is a powerful, deep, subtle, wide ranging, systematic work in political and moral philosophy which has not seen its' like since the writings of John Stuart Mill, if then. It is a fountain of illuminating ideas, integrated together into a lovely whole. Political philosophers now must either work within Rawls' theory or explain why not.

(RET veteran) Marty Carcieri is Professor of Political Science Emeritus at San Francisco State University. He is the author of APPLYING RAWLS IN THE 21ST CENTURY: RACE, GENDER, THE DRUG WAR, AND THE RIGHT TO DIE (2015).

Bring your own coffee and snacks (and be ready to engage in a lively Q&A afterward).
