Coker dccoker@mindspring.com <p class="Body">Critics of Rawls's <em>A Theory of Justice </em>frequently envision his original position as containing a human consciousness. Thus, the re- strictions Rawls introduces for this ‘individual’—the lack of particular circumstantial and personal information—is considered a potential problem. The very ways in which Rawls circumscribes the knowledge available in this position is thought to compromise the personhood of the individual there, and hence as well the conclusions reached (that is, Rawls’s two principles). This paper will argue that, on the contrary, the lack of full personhood is a critical part of Rawls’s modeling strategy, and that Rawls borrowed this particular sense of modeling from eco- nomics. It is well known that Rawls worked to verse himself in economic theory, and it is difficult to overlook its use in <em>Theory</em>. It will be argued that it is through parallels with economic reasoning that Rawls’s original position model can be most fruitfully understood.</p> 2023-01-23T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2022 David C.

Should They? 2022-06-01T15:05:01+02:00 Rona Dinur rdinur@gmail.com <p>In her recent book, <em>Faces of Inequality </em>(2020), Moreau aims at developing a normative account of discrimination that is guided by the main features of anti-discrimination law. The critical comment argues against this methodology, indicating that due to indeterminacy relative to their underlying normative principles, central anti-discrimination norms cannot fulfill this guiding role. Further, using the content of such norms to guide ethical discussions is likely to be misleading, as it reflects evidentiary considerations that are unique to the legal context. The critical comment’s claims are developed based on a close examination of indirect discrimination (or disparate impact) norms, and, as such, have wider implications for ongoing moral and political debates that are heavily influenced by the content of these norms.</p> 2022-11-06T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Rona Dinur
