John Rawls was born in 1921 and he died in 2002 having lived a full life where he was considered by some to be one of the most important philosophers of his time. Born in Baltimore, he went to school in Maryland before transferring to Kent School, a well respected prep school in Connecticut. When Rawls graduated in 1939, he went on to Princeton where he discovered a profound understanding of philosophy. After graduating from Princeton, Rawls joined the Army. Having viewed the devastation the bombing of Hiroshima stirred, Rawls left the Army instead of accepting an official position as an officer. Instead, he pursued his doctorate degree at Princeton and married Margaret Fox in 1949. Margaret, a Brown graduate, helped John write the index on a book about Nietzsche during their first months together. John Rawls returned to the states and began teaching at Cornell before later moving to Harvard. Rawls published Theory of Justice in 1971. He was also the author of other papers and intellectual works of thought-provoking creativity. Rawls taught at Harvard for approximately forty years. He had a stroke in 1995 but he went on to write The Law of Peoples which contains his passionate views on various topics including international justice. John Rawls died in 2002. He was eighty-one.

Biographical Sketch
Rawls's Contribution to Political and Moral Philosophy
Rawls is noted for his contributions to liberal political philosophy. Among the ideas from Rawls's work that have received wide attention are:
The two principles of justice (the liberty principle and the difference principle).
The original position and the veil of ignorance.
Reflective equilibrium.
Overlapping consensus.
Public reason.
Many academic philosophers believe that Rawls has made an important and lasting contribution to political philosophy. Others find Rawls's work unpersuasive and disengaged from political praxis. There is general agreement, however, that the publication of A Theory of Justice in 1971 led to a revival in the academic study of political philosophy. Rawls's work has crossed disciplinary lines, receiving serious attention from economists, legal scholars, political scientists, sociologists, and theologians. Rawls has the unique distinction among contemporary political philosophers of being frequently cited by the courts of law in the United States.
A Theory of Justice Method: The Original Position and Reflective Equilibrium In his most famous book, A Theory of Justice, Rawls argued for the two principles using the thought experiment of the original position, from which representatives would select principles of justice from behind a veil of ignorance. Rawls saw the original position as a development of the social contract theories associated with Thomas Hobbes, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and John Locke. Rawls argued that the representative parties in the original position would select justice as fairness, including the liberty principle and the difference principle, to govern the basic structure of society. In addition to the original position, Rawls relied on the notion of reflective equilibrium, which tests the results obtained from the original position against our considered judgments about particular cases.

Accessible and important development in liberal thought A Theory of Justice is surprisingly accessible, even to those of us without extensive training in philosophy. Rawls briefly examines two of the most influential Western liberal philosophers (Locke and Mill), and then proceeds to construct his own Theory which builds on Locke and Mill while solving for some of the deficiences in each. As Rawls admitted, the gist of his Theory can be gleaned from the first part of the book, though the book reads easily enough that one should be able to get through the whole thing fairly quickly.

    1. Historical Background: the Moral Point of View
    Later, philosophers posited similar perspectives for moral reasoning designed to yield impartial judgments once individuals abstract from their particular aims and interests and assess situations from an impartial point of view. But rather than being mainly explanatory like Hume's, the role of these impartial perspectives is to serve as a basis from which to assess and justify moral rules or principles. Kant's categorical imperative procedure, Adam Smith's impartial spectator, and Rousseau's general will are primary examples of representations of a moral point of view. An important feature of the idea of a moral point of view is that it is designed to represent something essential to the activity of moral reasoning. The moral point of view is in this way regarded as a significant part of an account of practical reasoning. For example, Kant's categorical imperative is envisioned as a point of view any reasonable person can adopt in deliberating about what he/she ought morally to do (CP 498ff). When joined with the common assumption that the totality of moral reasons is final and/or override non-moral reasons, the moral point of view might be regarded as the most fundamental perspective that we can adopt in practical reasoning about what we ought to do.

    John Rawls
    John Rawls (1921-2002) ha sido uno de los teóricos políticos más importantes del pasado siglo. Su principal aportación fue Una teoría de la Justicia , que procuró dar apoyo moral a la redistribución de rentas. Para ello supuso que los hombres, si actuaran bajo un "velo de ignorancia", en el que no conocieran sus talentos ni sus rentas, apoyarían una política de redistribución gubernamental.
    John Rawls y la justicia social: el círculo cuadrado

Según Revel el motor que mueve el mundo es la mentira. En cambio, para el autor de “La teoría de la Justicia”, es el estado del bienestar.

    John Rawls
    First published Tue Mar 25, 2008 John Rawls (b. 1921, d. 2002) was an American political philosopher in the liberal tradition. His theory of justice as fairness envisions a society of free citizens holding equal basic rights cooperating within an egalitarian economic system. His account of political liberalism addresses the legitimate use of political power in a democracy, aiming to show how enduring unity may be achieved despite the diversity of worldviews that free institutions allow. His writings on the law of peoples extend these theories to liberal foreign policy, with the goal of imagining how a peaceful and tolerant international order might be possible.

      1. Life and Work
      Rawls was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. His father was a prominent lawyer, his mother a chapter president of the League of Women Voters. Rawls studied at Princeton, where he was influenced by Wittgenstein's student Norman Malcolm; and at Oxford, where he worked with H. L. A. Hart, Isaiah Berlin, and Stuart Hampshire. His first professorial appointments were at Cornell and MIT. In 1962 Rawls joined the faculty at Harvard, where he taught for more than thirty years. Rawls's adult life was a scholarly one: its major events occurred within his writings. The exceptions were two wars. As a college student Rawls had considered studying for the priesthood; as an infantryman in the Pacific in World War II he lost his Christian faith on seeing the capriciousness of death in combat and learning of the horrors of the Holocaust. Then in the 1960s Rawls spoke out against the US involvement in Vietnam. The Vietnam conflict impelled Rawls to analyze the defects in the American political system that led it to prosecute so ruthlessly what he saw as an unjust war, and to consider how citizens could conscientiously resist their government's aggressive policies.

    John Rawls
    "Punishment" About the Author: John Rawls, who is now Professor of Philosophy Emeritus at Harvard University, is one of the major moral and political philosophers of the twentieth century. His A Theory of Justice set the stage for an entire generation of thinkers in their discussions of justice as fairness. His most recent book is Political Liberalism About the Article: Rawls draws a crucial distinction between (1) justifying a practice or institution and (2) justifying particular actions that fall under it. He then applies this distinction to the question of how we justify punishment. He argues that utilitarian considerations justify the institution of punishment as a whole, while retributivist concerns dictate and justify the decision to punishment particular crimes in particular ways. He then shows why utilitarian justifications of punishment as a institution are not open to the kinds of abuses some critics of utilitarianism have alleged.

    John Rawls (1921—2002)
    John Rawls was arguably the most important political philosopher of the 20th century. He wrote a series of highly influential articles in the 1950s and ’60s that helped refocus Anglo-American moral and political philosophy on substantive problems about what we ought to do. His first book, A Theory of Justice TJ ] (1971), revitalized the social-contract tradition, using it to articulate and defend a detailed vision of egalitarian liberalism. In Political Liberalism PL (1993), he recast the role of political philosophy, accommodating it to the effectively permanent “reasonable pluralism” of religious, philosophical, and other comprehensive doctrines or worldviews that characterize modern societies. He explains how philosophers can characterize public justification and the legitimate, democratic use of collective coercive power while accepting that pluralism. Although most of this entry will be devoted to TJ , the exposition of that work will take account of Political Liberalism and other later works of Rawls.

      Rawls, John Bordley
      Rawls, John Bordley, A Theory of Justice (1971, 2d ed. 1999), in which he attempted, within the social contract tradition of John Locke, Jean Jacques Rousseau, and Immanuel Kant, to offer an alternative to utilitarian political philosophy (see utilitarianism ). His system was developed from two basic principles: Each person has a right to the most extensive basic liberty compatible with like liberty for others, and inequalities in the distribution of wealth and power are just only when they can be reasonably expected to work to the advantage of those who are worst off. For Rawls, justice does not require equality in social position, but it does require that people share one another's fate. Providing the social contract tradition with a formidable philosophic defense by balancing the claims of liberty and equality, Rawls's book revived interest in systematic political theory. His other works include The Law of Peoples (1999) and Lectures on the History of Moral Philosophy (2000). He restated and enlarged the arguments of his 1971 magnum opus, replying to his critics and correcting what he perceived as mistakes in the original work while aiming at a broader audience, in his
