Abstract

JARAMILLO MARIN, Jefferson  and  ECHEVERRY ENCISO, Yesid. JUSTICE AS POLITICAL PROBLEM. FROM KANTIAN MORAL CONSTRUCTIVISM TO RAWLSIAN POLITICAL CONSTRUCTIVISM. Eidos [online]. 2009, n.11, pp.108-142. ISSN 1692-8857.

This paper discusses justice in terms of political problem as viewed by John Rawls' philosophy. It claims that the Kantian politic constructivism has some implications on the base of the Rawlsian liberalism. It argues about how the connection between these two different types of constructivism provides a construction procedure in which rational autonomous agents, submitted to reasonable conditions, make agreements concerning public principles about justice in order to reach a fair system of cooperation that goes beyond the generations. It concludes showing the limitations and achievements of the proposal in contemporary political philosophy.

Keywords : John Rawls; theory of justice; political philosophy; political liberalism; political constructivism; moral constructivism.
