Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungJohn Rawls is often considered the greatest American political philosopher of the twentieth century. This book offers a fundamental critique of both Rawls' conception of political philosophy and the policy judgments he derives from his "principles of justice." It challenges Rawls' allegations that our polity suffers from grave injustices.

Pressestimmen"This is a major accomplishment, more than a statement on Rawls. It is in addition to that a kind of meditation on political life and contemporary liberalism by a widely read, thoughtful, fearless observer who is not at all wishy-washy or dull in his judgments on Rawls or contemporary politics." - Michael P. Zuckert, author of Launching Liberalism: On Lockean Political Philosophy"
