Originally uploaded by Jacinto Quesnel

Justice concerns the proper ordering of things and persons within a society. As a concept it has been subject to philosophical, legal, and theological reflection and debate throughout history.

“Justice is the first virtue of social institutions, as truth is of systems of thought” -John Rawls

Few theorists, however, believe that the current world comprises a fully just system; Thomas Nagel: “We do not live in a just world.”
