- Binding: Paperback
Brian Barry's Justice as Impartiality confronts issues at the heart of modern political philosophy. This important collection examines various aspects of his argument and expands the discussion beyond the text to explore wider issues at the centre of contemporary debates about the nature and theories of distributive justice. It brings together responses from a wide range of Barry's critics including feminists, utilitarians, mutual advantage theorists, care theorists and anti-contractarians.Suitable for both undergraduates and academics working in political and legal theory, this text serves as an ideal companion volume to Barry's work. The expansion of each contributor's focus beyond the issues raised by Barry means this text also stands as a contribution to political thought in its own right.
