Frontiers of Justice
Disability, Nationality, Species MembershipBook - 2006
Theories of social justice are necessarily abstract, reaching beyond theparticular and the immediate to the general and the timeless. Yet suchtheories, addressing the world and its problems, must respond to thereal and changing dilemmas of the day. A brilliant work of practicalphilosophy, Frontiers of Justice is dedicated to this proposition. Takingup three urgent problems of social justice neglected by current theoriesand thus harder to tackle in practical terms and everyday life, MarthaNussbaum seeks a theory of social justice that can guide us to aricher, more responsive approach to social co-operation.
