Topic: Contemporary Theories of Justice
My essay question is:
“Even if Rawls succeeds in showing that it would be rational to choose his two principles of justice in the original position, it does not follow that we are obliged to accept them in reality.” Discuss.”
This essay will need to be 3750 words in length and have about 30 references in Harvard style. This book will have to be a priority to use as a source: Rawls, John (1971) A Theory of Justice
Also, the question does not ask whether it would be rational to choose the two principles of justice when reasoning from behind the veil, but whether Rawls’ method produces real moral obligations.
