Social Injustice Essays in Political Philosophy

Social Injustice Essays in Political Philosophy By Dr Vittorio Bufacchi
The idea of social injustice is pivotal to much contemporary moral and political philosophy, and yet this concept has repeatedly failed to attract the detailed analysis it deserves. How could so much be written about social justice, and so little about social injustice? The essays in this book are an attempt to rebalance this anomaly.The first chapter in this book provides a comprehensive and engaging account of the idea of social injustice. Here it is argued that there are three dimensions to social injustice: misdistribution; exclusion; disempowerment. Building on this initial analysis of social injustice, the other essays in this book cover a range of different including distributive justice, exploitation, torture, moral motivations, democratic theory, voting behaviour and market socialism.
Social Injustice Essays in Political Philosophy is very well written and draws you in. I couldn’t read it fast enough wanting know what happens. I finished a week so and I’m still upset about the end.
This is one of Dr Vittorio Bufacchi stronger books. It is heavy and intense with no lightness of spirit at all. I highly recommend it.
