Theory of Justice, John Rawls

March third is Girls' festival. Families with daughters dispay traditional dolls like this in their livingroom.

Anyway, we are going to read John Rawls' book, A Theory of Justice, in the coming semester in our graduate seminar. Probably this is one of the most influential books of American philosophy. The photo shows two different versions of this book: the upper one is the original version published in 1971, and the lower one is the revised version published in 1999. Some say that the former version was more interesting than the new one. I have not compared these two yet. I read the old one 20 years ago, but at that time I didn't understand the importance of this theory. Now I am curious about Rawls' theory and its faults.
