This fresh theory from one of America's leading academics revisits the debate about the concept of justice which lies at the heart both of moral philosophy and political theory. The author blends the Marxian view that private property is by definition coercive with the core liberal value of individual liberty, forging a revised definition of justice that addresses the limitations of both positions. Drawing on a number of key sources, including John Rawls, John Locke, and Emmanuel Kant, Reiman challenges the received enmity between Marxism and Liberalism.
