Plato vs. John Rawls On The
Concept of Justice :
One component of the definition of justice is the final outcome
of the process of law, or the Judicial system whereby justice is
distributed by the State. By this definition, justice is the
mechanical process of the structure of law - set in place and
agreed to by the people of the State. Another definition is
concerned with the value inherent in "just" behavior.
Simplistically defined, this is synonymous with "fair." The
grown-up word for this same concept is "equity." One
distinction between these two definitions is the difference
between an individual viewpoint and the larger view of society.
Either view incorporates the concept of moral judgment;
"good" as opposed to bad." This 7 page paper explores the
concept of justice as presented by Plato and by John Rawls.
