Authors

Abstract

The paper evaluates Nielsen’s second principle of justice and compares it with Rawls’ difference principle. The conclusion arrived at is that their difference is one of degree and not of substance since they both promote inequalities. The paper also argues against Beiner’s perspective regarding political citizenship as the sole end worthy of pursuit. It concludes that economic equality also ought to be pursued as an end itself.
