Artikelomschrijving

Contemporary philosophical pluralism recognizes the inevitability and legitimacy of multiple ethical perspectives and values, making it difficult to isolate the higher-order principles on which to base a theory of justice. Rising up to meet this challenge, Rainer Forst, a leading member of the Frankfurt Schools newest generation of philosophers, conceives of an autonomous construction of justice founded on what he calls the basic moral right to justification. Forst begins by identifying this right from the perspective of moral philosophy. Then, through an innovative, detailed critical analysis, he ties together the central components of social and political justice--freedom, democracy, equality, and toleration--and joins them to the right to justification. The resulting theory treats justificatory power as the central question of justice, and by adopting this approach, Forst argues, we can discursively work out, or construct, principles of justice, especially with respect to transnational justice and human rights issues.
