Synopsis: This book is a comprehensive treatment of the most influential political philosopher of the twentieth century, John Rawls, providing a survey that reflects the surge of Rawls scholarship since his death, and the lively debates that have emerged from his work. The book provides careful, textually informed exegesis and well-developed critical commentary across all areas of his work, including non-Rawlsian perspectives, and covers his moral and political philosophy, his distinctive methodological commitments, and his relationships to the history of moral and political philosophy and to jurisprudence and the social sciences.
