Title Justice through trust: disability and the Outlier problem in Social Contract Theory
Date 2005-10
Description The article focuses on the flaws of the social contract theory. It explores how hostile the social contract as a bargaining process has been thought to distance disabled people from contract-based justice. It analyzes the argument that the history of social contract theory exclude the people with disabilities from contracting process that gives rise to justice. It addresses the political progressiveness in contracting through a trust culture rather than bargaining culture.
