Product Description

Review

"Audard's book offers a concise reading of John Rawls's political philosophy. It is all at once instructive, pedagogical, provocative, and well informed... it will play an important role in the future for Rawls scholarship and must be taken very seriously by all Rawlsian scholars." - Ethics "An impressive book, written by someone who has an extensive and deep appreciation of Rawls' work. It offers a nuanced discussion of his central ideas, proceeding nicely from a discussion of A Theory of Justice through to Rawls' account of international political morality." - Matthew Clayton, University of Warwick --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

good intro to Rawls Aug. 26 2007
By AdamZach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For anyone looking for an accessible and solid introduction to
Rawls's work, this a good place to start. Audard explains clearly
some of Rawls's keys ideas, and some of her criticisms of those
ideas and possible responses to them are useful.
However, there are parts when Audard's setting up of criticisms
and leaving them dangling without seeing how Rawls's ideas could
counter them do seem contrived. Often the method here is to claim
that Ralws overlooked a point and that he did not formulate a response
clearly enough. Perhaps there may be some truth in these claims, but
a close reading of Rawls's texts may show that in many cases he did respond.
The point here is that Audard is not sympathetic enough to Rawls ideas
to be able to see the depth and subtlety in many of his notions and his
defence of them. Perhaps Samuel Freeman's new book on Rawls may fill that
gap.
