Title Justice: cosmic or communal?
Date 1985
Description What are the ground rules to be used for determining the scope and breadth of justice? What human activities does it cover, how much does it demand, what duties does it require? How are conflicting "intuitions" on these matters to be adjudicated? These questions are raised by Theodore Benditt's "The Demands of Justice: The Difference that Social Life Makes" when he tells us that we have a claim against society on grounds of justice only if "social life itself is in some relevant way responsible for the problems for which (we) seek relief.
