John Rawls/6/en

The objection offered is if you are completely ignorant of all aspects of society, how do you choose how to structure the society for social justice? Rawls heads off this object by offering a set of "primary goods". These primary goods are: rights, liberties, social bases of self respect, and opportunity in both income and wealth. Rawls postulates that the parties in the original position will prefer more primary goods than less primary goods. [1]
