Sen's The Idea of Justice: Back to the (Pragmatic) Future
Graduate studies at Western
Contemporary Pragmatism 7 (2):219-229 (2010)
|Abstract||Sen argues that Rawls’ political theory suffers from the flaw of “institutional fundamentalism.” In response, he develops an alternate theory of justice that does not rely upon contractarian premises. I argue that Sen’s theory largely maps on to the insights of classic pragmatist thought. Further, the pragmatic tradition can help critique and supplement Sen’s project.|
