Summary
Contexts of Justice, highly acclaimed when it was published in Germany, provides a significant new contribution to the important debate between communitarianism and liberalism. Rainer Forst argues for a theory of "contexts of justice" that leads beyond the narrow confines of this debate as it has been understood until now and posits the possibility of a new conception of social and political justice. Bringing refreshing clarity to a complex topic, Forst investigates the vast literature on liberalism and communitarianism. He discusses in detail the work of communitarians such as Sandel, MacIntyre, Taylor, and Walzer and liberals such as Rawls, Dworkin, and Raz; examines recent debates about discursive democracy and feminist critiques of liberalism; and addresses such topics as multiculturalism and civil society. This provocative book will be invigorating reading for political theorists working in the tradition of critical theory, for liberal and communitarian theorists, and for philosophers and others interested in the future of democratic institutions
