I wish John Rawls would have understood just one single word of all these. -----Ursprüngliche Mitteilung----- Von: bhandari@BERKELEY.EDU An: OPE-L@SUS.CSUCHICO.EDU Verschickt: Di., 6. Mrz. 2007, 23:33 Thema: [OPE-L] Rawls on Marx's idea of species essence John Rawls, Lectures on the History of Political Philosophy: Human beings are a distinctive natural kind--or species--in the sense that they collectively produce and reproduce their conditions of social life over time. Yet along with this their social forms evolve historically and in a certain sequence until eventually a social form develops that is, more or less, adequate to their nature as rational and active beings who, as it were, create, working with the forces of nature, the conditions of their complete social self realization. The activity by which this collective self-expression is accomplished is species-activity: that is, the cooperative work of many generations and is completed only after a long period of time. p. 363 book just out from Harvard University Press Also a critique of left libertarian Marxism in the name of coercive enforcement of policies required for justice as Rawls theorizes it... ________________________________________________________________________ Kostenlos: AOL eMail 2 GB Speicherplatz sowie erstklassiger Spam- und eMail Virenschutz.
