Philosophy Talk: John Rawls

Feb 19, 2021

The life and thought of political philosopher John Rawls, born February 21, 1921. 


John Rawls was one of the most influential political philosophers of the twentieth century. In his book A Theory of Justice he articulated a concept of justice as fairness, which won many fans among liberals, and provoked important responses from thoughtful libertarians such as Robert Nozick. Ken and John explore Rawls' ideas with one of his students, Joshua Cohen from UC Berkeley (formerly of Stanford University). Sunday, February 21 at 11 am.
