  1. Rawls: An Introduction.Sebastiano Maffettone - 2011 - Polity.
    _Rawls: An Introduction_ is a uniquely comprehensive introduction to the work of the American philosopher John Rawls, who transformed contemporary political philosophy. In the 1950s and 1960s, political philosophy seemed to have reached a dead end characterized by a loose predominance of utilitarian theses. Rawls’s conception of liberalism placed civil liberties and social justice at its core, and his extraordinary influence has only been confirmed by the extent of the criticism he has provoked. The book is divided into three parts (...)

    Philosophical Presuppositions of Intercultural Dialogue and Multiculturalism: How to Avoid the Liaison Dangereuse Between Post-Colonialism and Postmodernism.Sebastiano Maffettone - 2011 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 37 (4):493-504.
    Post-colonial theories present narratives of discontent based on resentment toward colonial exploitation and cultural hegemony. The substance matter of post-colonial narratives is sound. Post-colonial theories often rely on a post-modern philosophical argumentative structure. The second-order argument is not able to support the first-order argument. In particular, the nihilist consequences of post-modernism make impossible the construction of a discourse through which the discontent is transformed in a basis for a reasonable political action. The lack of such a discourse is a source (...)

    Liberalism and its Critique: Is the Therapy Worse Than the Disease?Sebastiano Maffettone - 2000 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 26 (3):1-37.
    Starting with the assumption that liberalism is under attack both from political and from philosophical alternatives, this paper is limited to a discussion of one family of critical arguments toward liberalism, namely the arguments that stress the importance of process as contrasted with substance. According to these arguments philosophical and political liberalism is based on substantive principles of justice, whereas a proper democratic theory should be founded on more procedural theories of justice. Such criticism ranges from democratic deliberative approaches to (...)

    Political Liberalism: Reasonableness and Democratic Practice.Sebastiano Maffettone - 2004 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 30 (5-6):541-577.
    This paper aims to explore an important concept in the work of the later Rawls: the idea of the reasonable. While the concept has its roots in both Aristotle and Kant, Rawls develops a unique account of the reasonable in the light of his theory of political liberalism. The paper includes Rawlsian responses to the practical challenges of radical democrats on the one hand, and epistemological challenges to the reasonable on the other. It concludes that Rawls’s account of the reasonable (...)

    Global Justification and Local Legitimation.Sebastiano Maffettone - 2012 - Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy 15 (2):239-257.
    This paper distinguishes between the concepts of justification and legitimation with a view to offering a normative standard for global justice compatible with cultural pluralism. According to this distinction, justification is presented as an idealized, substantive and top-down enterprise rooted in the moral and metaphysical substrate of a specific culture. On the other hand, legitimation has a procedural and factual connotation and derives its strength from the success of some culturally independent but historically situated practice (bottom-up approach). Building on this (...)

    John Rawls.Sebastiano Maffettone - 2001 - Croatian Journal of Philosophy 1 (3):189-216.
    This article raises some structural and theoretical problems in comprehensively reading Rawls. The first part divides Rawls’s oeuvre into two periods: the period marked by his most significant work A Theory of Justice (1971), and the period represented by Political Liberalism (1993) and The Law of Peoples (1999). The article examines ideas from all three books. The author first tries to show the continuity of Rawls’s liberalism, the best example being the development of the idea of the priority of right (...)
