Justice by Milton Fisk
Book DescriptionThis work is the first in a series of student texts. The series presents both traditional and contemporary analyses of concepts essential to the critical evaluation of society and the attempt to form a genuinely emancipatory social theory. Each title in the series explores a variety of theoretical contexts and political programmes in which the selected concept has functioned, from the earliest, foundational use of the concpet through to contemporary discussions. The individual editors provide introductions that trace the development of each concept and define the central controversies surrounding its use. This volume aims to capture the basic thrust of progressive views about justice in the recent period. Fisk's selections show that in the ground-breaking work now being done, there is a unity of ethical and political considerations. Theoretical concerns and studies of practical justice are also addressed. The editor incorporates high theory as expounded by figures like Rawls and Habermas, as well as applications to issues of race, gender, law, ecology and class. Since the 19th century intellectual background is important for studying current developments in justice, J.S. Mill, Marx and T.H. Green are also included to represent the current of social change from that time. Finally, recent debates on whether justice can be colour- or gender-blind are represented in the writings of a number of known African-American and women writers. The anthology focuses on applied issues. It should be of interest to students taking courses in political philosophy, political theory, ethics, social theory and intellectual history. It should also be a useful guide for graduate students and instructors who widh to follow the current debate on justice.
