Title: Marx and Rawls on the Justice of Capitalism and the Market
Authors: Hunt, Ian Edgell
Issue Date: 2007
Publisher: Department of Philosophy and Centre for Applied Philosophy
Citation: Hunt, I.E., 2007. Marx and Rawls on the Justice of Capitalism and the Market. Proceedings of the Symposium on Marxist Philosophy: Chinese and Western Perspectives.
Abstract: Marx and Rawls appear to have quite different views of justice. Marx claims that the concept of justice functions ideologically to represent conduct required by the prevailing mode of production as universally binding imperatives. Rawls claims that justice is the first virtue of society, whose principles may be agreed to by all persons who impartially and rationally deliberate on the issue of fairly dividing the burdens and benefits of social cooperation. I argue that these apparently different positions on justice can be reconciled, although important differences between the standpoints of Marx and Rawls remain.
