This book, with its vast, serpentine structure and somewhat banal thesis--liberalism, capitalism, a priori original positions, etc.--is what you get when you build an entire pyramid to serve as holder for a single candle at the top.

Rawls attempts to work out some of the problems from Theory of Justice, but the conclusions are all the same. Blah!

Did reignite interest in political philosophy in the 20th century, but only by putting an enormous target on Rawls' back.
