not yet rated|write a review
The essays in this book by a group of leading political theorists assess and develop the central ideas of Michael Walzer's path-breaking Spheres of Justice. Is social justice a radically plural notion, with its principles determined by the different social goods that men and women allocate toone another? Is it possible to prevent the unequal distribution of money and power from distorting the allocation of other goods? If different goods are distributed by different mechanisms, what (if any) kind of social equality is possible? Are there universal principles of justice which applyregardless of context? These and other related questions are pursued in depth by the contributors. The book concludes with an important new essay by Walzer in which he reflects on the positions taken in his original book in the light of the critical appraisals presented here.

Editorial Reviews

`This is an excellent collection of critical essays on Michael Walzer's Spheres of Justice ... David Miller provides a comprehensive and lucid introduction to Walzer's views on justice, and Walzer offers a brief- perhaps too brief- response to his critics.'James W Nickel, The Philosophical Review, Vol 106, No 1 Jan 1997
